Clinical and Research Background
Gordana Juric-Sekhar, M.D., Ph.D., is an attending neuropathologist and an acting Instructor in the Neuropathology Division, an integral part of the Department of Pathology. Dr. Juric-Sekhar is board-certified in anatomic pathology and neuropathology. She is also a fellow of the College of American Pathologists.
Dr. Juric-Sekhar believes making the right diagnosis is an important step in the treatment of patients with various disorders. Therefore, she strives to make the best neuropathological diagnosis of her patients using the most modern tools available. Her clinical practice includes various tumors of the central nervous system (CNS), neuromuscular and ophthalmic disorders, vascular neuropathology, and brain autopsy subspecialty.
Dr. Juric-Sekhar’s research effort is emphasized on creating new techniques that may provide complementary information to that of conventional histopathology. Her main research interest is Raman spectroscopy for the diagnosis of various CNS tumors and other lesions, a minimally-invasive technique based on the Raman effect. She is also working with researchers in chemistry using Stimulated Raman Scattering (SRS) microscopy stain-free imaging technique on skull base tumors. An additional area of interest is the pathology of brain aneurysm formation in collaboration with experts in vascular neurosurgery, neuroradiology, and engineering.
