Cancer Neurology Research

Working within the Center for Neuro-Oncology at Dana-Farber Brigham Cancer Center, our neuro-oncologists are leading basic, translational and clinical research aimed at advancing brain tumor diagnosis and treatment. Our research staff focuses on the following major areas:

In the research laboratory and the clinic, we are also studying:

  • CNS and systemic lymphoma
  • Brain metastasis
  • Adaptive designs for brain tumor clinical trials
  • Neurologic complications of cancer
  • Oncolytic viruses
  • Surgical brain mapping
  • Molecular and cellular surgical oncology
  • CNS drug delivery/mass spectrometry
  • Tumor metabolism/IDH mutations
  • Olig 2 suppression
  • Advanced neuro-imaging

Clinical Trials

As we search for new, more effective treatments, we are able to offer our patients access to a range of neuro-oncology clinical trials that explore innovative approaches to improve outcomes and quality of life for brain tumor patients, including immunotherapy, targeted therapies, and anti-angiogenesis inhibitors.
