"Knowledge is our core business and I am extremely proud of the Department of Surgery's involvement in the development of new knowledge and its application to the benefit of patients as well as its dissemination to a new generation of surgeons. Whether it is in the basic science laboratory or the clinical arena, we are excited and inspired by the work of our team."
