Personalized neurosurgery fathoms the range from basal neuroscience to individual patient experiences. We bring together neuroscience from the center for translational neuroscience, and clinical neurosurgery in a new infrastructure: The Personalized Neurosurgery Research Center. For personalized neurosurgery, basic science theories and knowledge regarding individual biomarkers to predict individual results is lacking. Basic sciences lack means to corroborate hypotheses that explain human neuroscience. We are creating the Copenhagen Personalized Neurosurgery Research Center focused on comprehensive personalized clinical neuroscience and translational sciences with international leaders in their respective fields.
