Our current research projects include:

  • Development of targeted therapeutics for primary and metastatic brain cancer
  • Development of targeted therapeutics for selected non-CNS cancers (e.g., breast)
  • Drug delivery augmentation using Convection Enhanced Delivery (CED; for brain cancer) and Focused Ultrasound (FUS; for brain and non-CNS cancers) 
  • Utilization of RCAS-Tva transgenic rat model of brain cancer for studying pathophysiology and testing new therapeutics 
  • Evaluation of new metabolic imaging methods for brain cancer
The TTRG is a multi-disciplinary team of clinicians, engineers, and cancer biologists actively working together to solve life-limiting treatment challenges in the neuroscience and cancer fields.
