UI Ojemann lecture features Johns Hopkins neurosurgeon
IOWA CITY, Iowa -- Dr. James N. Campbell, professor of neurosurgery
at Johns Hopkins University, will present the Ralph H. and Freda E. Ojemann
Visiting Professorship Lecture next week at the University of Iowa.
Campbell's discussion, which the UI Foundation and UI College of Medicine's
Division of Neurosurgery will sponsor, focuses on "Neuropathic Pain:
From the Neuron to the Clinic." The lecture starts at 4 p.m. Friday,
Nov. 20 in the Medical Alumni Auditorium, E331 of the General Hospital
at UI Hospitals and Clinics. The lecture is free and open to the public.
Campbell received his medical degree in 1973 from Yale University. After
completing his residency in neurological surgery at the Johns Hopkins University
in Baltimore, he remained on the faculty and became a full professor and
vice chairman for the department of neurosurgery in 1988. He has published
more than 150 manuscripts about the understanding of the central nervous
system's physiology concerning pain and is recognized both nationally and
internationally for much of his pioneering research in the field.
The Ralph H. and Freda E. Ojemann Visiting Professorship, which the
Ojemann children established to honor their parents' commitment to education,
is an endowed fund established to bring a distinguished professor to the
UI College of Medicine for several days each year. Ralph Ojemann served
on the UI faculty from 1929 to 1965.
The UI rotates the Ojemann professorship annually among the department
of neurology, the department of surgery's Division of Neurosurgery and
the department of psychiatry.
