From 1989 to 1991 at the University of Pittsburgh, he completed a master of science program in the Department of Behavioral Neuroscience and a fellowship in stereotactic surgery and radiosurgery. His thesis focused on brain radiobiology.
He joined the faculty of the Department of Neurological Surgery at the University of Pittsburgh in January 1992. Dr. Kondziolka served as principal investigator of the first two clinical neurotransplantation trials for the care of patients with stroke and completed a third as co-principal investigator on a study to evaluate bone marrow derived neuroprogenitor cell implantation for stroke. He has completed two clinical trials in neurostimulation research for major depression with the Department of Psychiatry and directed the UPMC Center for Brain Function and Behavior. His laboratory and clinical research in stereotactic radiosurgery spans the breadth of indications including benign and malignant tumors, vascular malformations and functional disorders.
