Clinical Trials Offer Patient Access to Groundbreaking Therapies

Investigational clinical trials are at the heart of innovation in brain tumor treatment.

At the Gerald J. Glasser Brain Tumor Center, we have a robust clinical trial research infrastructure in place. As a member of the National Cancer Institute (NCI) Cooperative Group System – and in partnership with several biotech/pharmaceutical companies and the Translational Genomics Research Institute, we offer patients access to groundbreaking, evolving therapies.

Currently, we are developing novel treatments for:

  • Low-grade gliomas
  • Glioblastoma
  • Other high-grade primary brain tumors
  • Metastatic brain tumors
  • Tumors that cause malignant cells to spread to the fluid surrounding the brain and spinal cord.

To treat these challenging tumors, we are focusing on immunotherapies, CAR-T strategies, oncolytic tumor viruses and other targeted therapies.
