MONEEB EHTESHAM, MD, graduated from Karachi Grammar School in Karachi, Pakistan and subsequently attended The Aga Khan University Medical College. He pursued a postdoctoral fellowship in basic neuro-oncology at the Maxine Dunitz Neurosurgical Institute at Cedars Sinai Medical Center working under Dr. Keith Black where his research focused on glioma-directed immunotherapy and stem cell niches and migration in the context of neuro-oncogenesis. While at Cedars, Dr. Ehtesham received the Young Investigator Award from the AANS. He was subsequently funded with an NIH R01 grant (as principal investigator) focused on elucidating chemotactic signaling pathways governing tumor-tropic neural stem cell migration. From 2011-2013, Dr. Ehtesham also completed a two-year endovascular neurosurgery fellowship under the mentorship of Drs. J Mocco and Robert J. SInger. He is currently a Chief Neurosurgery Resident and his clinical interests include all aspects of cerebrovascular/endovascular neurosurgery and complex skull base neurosurgical oncology.
Outside of neurosurgery, Moneeb is an avid cricket fan and enjoys swimming and playing with his children.
