Background: He completed his MD/PhD at Georgetown University in May 2003. His PhD was in Tumor Biology and his thesis explored the role of a tyrosine kinase receptor in glioblastoma multiforme. He did my neurosurgery residency at Duke University, completing his chief resident year in June 2008. He stayed on at Duke for one year of endovascular training, and then did a second year of endovascular at the University of Wisconsin-Madison. He started as an assistant professor here at OSUWMC in July 2010. He was recruited here to be an endovascular neurosurgeon.

Research interests: Early changes in intracellular signaling pathways following subarachnoid hemorrhage, neurocognitive outcome following subarachnoid hemorrhage

Active Funding:
Dr. Powers secured an internal grant from the Center for Clinical and Translational Science (CCTS) for translational research and an external grant from the Brain Aneurysm Foundation. He has used these grants to generate data on changes in microRNA levels in the cerebrospinal fluid (CSF) of patients with aneurysmal subarachnoid hemorrhage. Grant funds have supported the Laser Capture Core Facility for RNA isolation and analysis.
