Research Interest

My research interests are in the fields of cancer stem cells and experimental therapeutics of malignant brain tumors I particularly interested in establishing preclinical rational of various antitumor compounds, and is working closely with other clinical investigators to quickly translate the preclinical findings into clinical trials. My research is also focused on the delineation of genetic pathways that are involved in the determination of drug responsiveness of brain tumor cells through comprehensive molecular analysis. The ultimate goal is to identify diagnostic markers and therapeutic targets that will eventually lead to molecular based subclassification of pediatric brain tumors and more effective therapies with low toxicity.
