RESEARCH GROUP

NCI-Greenebaum Cancer Center & Department of Neurosurgery

University of Maryland School of Medicine​ - Baltimore, MD

Collaborations:

Our current research projects include:


  • Development of targeted therapeutics for invasive brain cancer
  • Development of targeted therapeutics for metastatic non-CNS cancers
  • ​Evaluation of new metabolic imaging and SonoDynamic Therapy (SDT) approaches for brain cancer
  • Drug delivery augmentation using Convection Enhanced Delivery (CED) and Focused Ultrasound (FUS) techniques 
  • Optimization of transgenic (e.g., RCAS-TVA) and patient-derived xenograft (PDX) cancer models
The TTRG is a cross-disciplinary team of physicians, engineers, and cancer biologists actively working together to solve life-limiting treatment challenges in the neuroscience and cancer fields.
