With more than 100 scientists and clinicians dedicated to benign and malignant tumors, the Brain Tumor Center is focused on developing the most innovative and effective therapies to treat brain tumors.
The Center’s multidisciplinary approach has already led to several ground-breaking clinical trials, offered at Siteman Cancer Center, including immunotherapy, genomics-based precision medicine, and laser technology to kill tumors from the inside out.
The Brain Tumor Center at Siteman will be part of the 11-story neuroscience research building, the largest project in the history of Washington University School of Medicine, bringing together 10 core research groups to collaborate. The Brain Tumor Center comprises experts from the School of Medicine’s neurosurgery, medicine (Division of Oncology) and radiation oncology departments, as well as others in pathology & immunology, otolaryngology, neurology, radiology and endocrinology. Pediatric experts affiliated with Siteman Kids at St. Louis Children’s Hospital will also be an integral part of the Brain Tumor Center.
