He pursued a postdoctoral fellowship in 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 subsequently was funded with an NIH R01 grant (as principal investigator) focused on elucidating chemotactic signaling pathways governing tumor-tropic neural stem cell migration. Dr. Ehtesham is currently a PGY-5 neurosurgery resident and is completing the second year of an infolded endovascular neurosurgery fellowship. His clinical interests include all aspects of cerebrovascular/endovascular neurosurgery and complex skull base neurosurgical oncology.
