Mechanisms of self-renewal, differentiation, and invasion in brain tumors

Our research goal is to better understand the biology of brain tumors, and to use such knowledge to devise new therapeutic approaches. We are interested in the mechanisms of glioma cell self-renewal, differentiation, invasion, generation of cellular diversity (heterogeneity), and the role of the microenvironment in promoting tumor growth.
