Brain Tumour Research Group

The Brain Tumour Research Group is directly integrated with The Neuro, enabling interactions and collaborations with molecular, cellular, and developmental neuroscientists and research groups.

Areas of research include, but are not limited to, uncovering fundamental regulatory mechanisms that govern brain cancer development, regulate brain cancer stem-cell self-renewal and differentiation, drive invasion, and lead to treatment resistance. All state-of-the-art technologies are available including next-generation genomic and epigenomic testing, computational biology approaches, cell-based assays for drug screening, patient-derived cranial xenograft modeling, and small animal imaging.
