A new building is currently in construction to house the center and the members of the neurosurgery, radiation oncology, pathology, immunology, otolaryngology, neurology, radiology and endocrinology departments. Neurosurgeon and scientist Albert H. Kim, MD, PhD has been appointed as the inaugural director.
