Dr Caroline Tan was supported during my research years by several highly competitive and prestigious scholarships by the Royal Australasian College of Surgeons, including the John Loewenthal Scholarship and the Surgeon Scientist Fellowship. Although she is not involved in research at present, she has maintained an academic interest in brain tumors and is one of the contributing authors in a 4-volume North American book series on tumors of the central nervous system. However, my academic interests are not confined to brain tumors and she is also the principal author of a chapter on cerebral blood flow 6th edition of the world-renowned Youmans Neurological Surgery textbook. In addition, she has been a reviewer for the Australasian Journal of Clinical Neuroscience for many years and is occasionally invited to review articles for other international journals.
