Professor and Vice Chair of Research, Department of Neurological Surgery, Feinberg School of Medicine; Member of Robert H. Lurie Comprehensive Cancer Center of Northwestern University
His research is focused on elucidating the molecular and biological consequences of specific gene alterations in central nervous system cancer (CNS), with particular emphasis on malignant gliomas, the most common type of primary CNS tumor, and identifying actionable / druggable molecular characteristics that result from specific gene alterations. This approach to the study of CNS cancer has led to, and will continue to promote improved treatment outcomes for brain tumor patients.
