The Goodyear microsurgery laboratory was established by the departments of Neurosurgery and Otolaryngology in collaboration with the College of medicine in 1986. It became operational in 1987. Harry vanLoveren, M.D. and Jeffrey T. Keller, Ph.D. served
as co-directors. During the ensuing years, the laboratory trained more than 50 research and clinical fellows, while becoming an integral part of the curricula for neurosurgery residents at the University of Cincinnati. The scholar productivity resulting
from their efforts as well as other members of the faculty includes more than 200 publications, a two-volume Atlas of operative micro neurosurgery, greater
than a hundred training and teaching programs conducted locally, nationally and internationally, and numerous presentations at local, national and international meetings. The skull base program and the Department of Neurosurgery at the University
of Cincinnati have achieved national and international recognition as a result of those efforts. Work produced at the Goodyear Laboratory continues to be recognized as seminal, and neuroanatomical descriptions as well as surgical techniques developed
or perfected at the Goodyear Lab are currently in use in operating rooms around the world.
Fellowships in research within the Goodyear Lab are available. Qualified candidates are encouraged to apply for a research fellowship in the Goodyear Lab here.
Under the guidance of one of the research mentors, the fellow will lead anatomical research project(s) from their design until their completion.
Those interested in learning more information about the research fellowship are directed to contact Kathi Smith, Senior Research Assistant firstname.lastname@example.org.
The Goodyear Laboratory has also served as a training facility for medical device and instrument companies. Formally known as Neurosurgery 101, more than one hundred courses have been taught to physicians, sales representatives, and staff.
