Graham T. Allison, PhD, has been selected to deliver the Michael L. J. Apuzzo Lecture on Creativity and Innovation at the 2018 meeting of the Congress of Neurological Surgeons (CNS). Dr. Allison, the Douglas Dillon Professor of Government at the John F. Kennedy School of Government at Harvard, is the author of the 1976 best-seller Remaking Foreign Policy: The Organizational Connection and has served for decades since then as an advisor and analyst on matters of nuclear weapons, terrorism, and political affairs.

The Apuzzo Lecture and the accompanying award were established by the CNS in 2006 CNS to honor Dr. Apuzzo’s contributions to neurosurgery and to spur creative thinking and innovation in the field.  Honorees have included such luminaries as producer George Lucas, musicians Itzak Perlman and Herbie Hancock,  composer Phillip Glass, conductor Michael Tilson Thomas, Nobel laureate economist Muhammad Yunus, and legal scholar Akhil Reed Amar.

Neurosurgeon-in-Chief Dr. Philip E. Stieg will introduce Dr. Allison when he delivers this year’s address on October 9 at the 2018 CNS Annual Meeting, which is being held in Houston, Texas. See a preview of the meeting
