    Collapse Overview
    Dr. Rodriguez Rubio is the director and principal investigator of the Skull Base and Cerebrovascular Laboratory. He is a neurosurgeon specializing in neurovascular, white matter, and skull base neuroanatomy. He is trained in creating 3D anatomical volumetric models and virtual neurosurgical simulations. Dr. Rodriguez Rubio oversees the activity of the laboratory and coaches the research fellows.

    As a neurosurgical resident at Hospital Civil de Guadalajara "Fray Antonio Alcalde," he actively participated in Guadalajara's Mission Brain with neurosurgical teams from UCSF and Johns Hopkins. He had the opportunity to attend several cadaveric courses in the United States – further igniting his passion for cadaveric dissections in the hopes of improving results in the operating room. He has an extensive observership experience from countries including the United States, Germany, France, and England.

    Altmetrics Details PMC Citations indicate the number of times the publication was cited by articles in PubMed Central, and the Altmetric score represents citations in news articles and social media. (Note that publications are often cited in additional ways that are not shown here.) Fields are based on how the National Library of Medicine (NLM) classifies the publication's journal and might not represent the specific topic of the publication. Translation tags are based on the publication type and the MeSH terms NLM assigns to the publication. Some publications (especially newer ones and publications not in PubMed) might not yet be assigned Field or Translation tags.) Click a Field or Translation tag to filter the publications.
