Clinical and Research Background

Gordana Juric-Sekhar, MD, PhD, is an attending neuropathologist and 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.

Dr. Juric-Sekhar’s research efforts are directed at creating new techniques that potentially provide complementary information to that of conventional histopathology. She is interested in the usage of the Raman spectroscopy for diagnosis of various CNS tumors and other lesions, as it is a minimally-invasive technique based on the Raman effect. She collaborates with researchers in chemistry using Stimulated Raman Scattering (SRS) microscopy stain-free imaging technique on skull base tumors. Dr. Juric-Sekhar is also involved in a research collaboration with experts in vascular neurosurgery, neuroradiology, and engineering focused on the pathology of brain aneurysm formation.
