My primary area of clinical research is in the treatment and long term care of children with brain and spinal cord tumors, with a specific interest in high grade glioma. Through participation in various consortiums and research groups, I am involved locally in the conduct of clinical trials for patients with newly diagnosed and recurrent tumors. I hope to expand our patients' access to early phase and innovative therapies, including immunotherapy, particularly for difficult to treat tumors.
