Research Interests

Clinical trials for high grade gliomas and medulloblastoma in infants and young children- Our understanding of the process of pediatric brain tumor development has significantly improved in recent years due to advances in the genetic and molecular techniques used to study these tumors.  My goal is to apply these advances in formulating clinical trials to improve survival and reduce long term side effects in infants and young children with high grade gliomas and medulloblastoma.

Clinical Interests

  • Infant medulloblastoma
  • High grade glioma in infants and young children
