Biography :

Dr. Alfredo Quinones-Hinojosa received a medical degree from Harvard University, where he graduated cum laude. He completed his residency in neurosurgery at the University of California, San Francisco, where he also completed a postdoctoral fellowship in developmental and stem cell biology. His career began at Johns Hopkins University, where he became a Professor of Neurosurgery and Oncology, Neuroscience and Cellular and Molecular Medicine and Director of the Brain Tumor Stem Cell Laboratory. Nowadays, he is the “William J. and Charles H. Mayo Professor" and Chair of Neurologic Surgery at the Mayo Clinic in Jacksonville, Florida.

His efforts in the laboratory have produced the first and only model of the organization of the human subventricular zone, as well as the elucidation that astrocytes in this region are stem cells. His clinical interests focus on the surgical treatment of primary and metastatic brain tumors, with an emphasis on motor and speech mapping during surgery as well as in the treatment of patients with pituitary and skull base tumors using transsphenoidal endonasal and minimally invasive surgical approaches.

Furthermore, Dr. Q has received many awards and honors, including being named as one of the 100 most influential Hispanics in the U.S. by Hispanic Business Journal in 2008; as 2014 Neurosurgeon of the Year by Voices Against Brain Cancer, where he was also recognized with the Gary Lichtenstein Humanitarian Award; and by the 2015 Forbes magazine as one of Mexico’s most brilliant minds in the world.
