As the director of the Brain Tumor Treatment and Research Center at the University of Maryland Medical Center and an active member of the UM Greenebaum Cancer Center, I provide leadership and surgical care within a multidisciplinary team of radiologists, medical oncologists, radiation oncologists, neurosurgeons and pathologists treating brain tumor patients and developing new brain tumor treatments. I also take special interest in benign and malignant tumors of the brain and spine, pituitary tumors, Chiari malformation and degenerative conditions of the cervical spine.
This clinical role enables me to facilitate the cross-disciplinary group of engineers, cancer biologists and clinician-scientists within the Translational Therapeutics Research Group (TTRG) to address key challenges in counteracting the pathobiology and improving the treatment of brain cancer. Much of this work is centered on the concept of using the operating room as a portal for discovery and opportunity to improve our understanding of and therapeutic delivery for brain cancer.
My long-standing goal in treating glioblastoma (GB) is to link tumor-specific features with effective anti-tumor therapies to generate long-term treatment responses to potentially cure GB.
