Neuro-Oncology Focus Group

We are starting a new focus group for brain and spine tumors where basic, translational, and clinical research will be discussed in formal and informal ways for the diagnosis and treatment of these tumors.  This may include primary or secondary tumors. The overarching goal of this group is to strengthen our Comprehensive Cancer Center and ultimately improve patient care.

 Our objectives are to:

1) Foster collaboration in neuro-oncology research

2) Compete for national funding for basic and translational research as well as clinical trials

 Our monthly meeting will be held on the 2nd Monday of each month from 4-5PM. All interested investigators, cancer center members and their immediate colleagues (lab personnel and residents, etc.) are invited to attend. In this way, we hope to inspire new projects and collaborations.


The first meeting will be held on Monday July 8th, 2013 at 4PM in Neurosurgery conference room, UT 4124.

 If you have any questions, please email Michele Aizenberg or Nicole Shonka.
