Research Focus: 

Research is in the field of pediatric brain tumours, more specifically in brain tumours from the astrocytic lineage. The main objective is to achieve a better characterization of molecular markers and pathways responsible for pediatric high grade astrocytoma formation in a large number of pediatric tumours.Results will provide insight into genetic pathways involved in the initiation and progression of pediatric high grade astrocytomas and will likely provide a rational framework for the development of efficient interventional therapies.
