Continued evaluation and implementation of new techniques in neurovascular disease are also being evaluated. In the laboratory, efforts have been focused on studying cerebral ischemia in the setting of neurovascular procedures. More recently, the laboratory has been focused on the biology of intracranial aneurysms and the use of tissue engineering techniques to treat saccular intracranial aneurysms. Dr. Ogilvy is heavily involved in the training of neurosurgical residents at Massachusetts General Hospital. He has mentored numerous students, fellows, and residents in the laboratory.
