The Brain Tumor Laboratory at Brigham and Women's Hospital and Children's Hospital

The Brain Tumor Laboratory is a unique environment for basic science researchers, medical students, international research fellows and neurosurgeons to take a multidisciplinary approach to understanding basic biology, and to develop new therapies to treat brain tumors. The current research focuses on the two types of tumors that together account for the vast majority of brain tumors: gliomas and meningiomas. The studies they perform seek to address a broad range of issues including basic questions of tumor behavior and biology, development of targeted treatments for specific types of tumors, and understanding how overall patient health or environmental exposures may contribute to brain tumor growth.
