Inaugural Grubb Lecture debuts

For more than 40 years, Robert L. Grubb, Jr., MD, served in the Washington University Department of Neurosurgery as an outstanding scientist, surgeon, and exceptional teacher. Dr. Grubb even wrote the definitive history book about the department – Neurosurgery at Washington University: A Century of Excellence.

On Oct. 11, the inaugural Robert L. Grubb, Jr., MD Lecture took place featuring neurosurgery resident alumnus Jeffrey G. Ojemann, MD, as the first speaker.

Dr. Ojemann is the Chief Medical Officer and Senior Vice-President at Seattle Children’s Hospital. He is also a Professor and Vice-Chair for Research in Neurological Surgery at the University of Washington School of Medicine. He is a member of the executive committee of the Center for Integrative Brain Research at the Seattle Children’s Research Institute. Additionally, he holds the Richard G. Ellenbogen Chair in Pediatric Neurological Surgery at Seattle Children’s and is a research affiliate at the University of Washington Center for Neurotechnology.

Resident education is a key centerpiece of our department and we know the annual Grubb Lecture will become a premiere event to honor our outstanding residency alumni across the country.
