Clinical Expertise

Pediatric brain tumors

Research Interest

Normal neuronal precursor cell proliferation, survival and migration in order to identify pathways that are likely to contribute to the genetics of pediatric brain tumors. We described a critical role for the chemokine receptor CSCR4 in normal cerebellar development and malignant brain tumor growth. This requirement creates a unique vulnerability in cancer growth to CXCR4 blockade, and we hope to exploit this in novel treatments for pediatric and adult patients with brain tumors.
