Area of interest
My lab studies the interrelation between normal brain growth and pediatric brain tumor formation. We focus on the cerebellum which is a key site of postnatal brain growth, and on medulloblastoma, a cerebellar tumor that is the most common malignant brain tumor in children. Our goal is to develop new treatments for brain tumors based on their unique biology.
