Children’s Research Institute Seminar Series: “Insight into tumor-stroma interactions in medulloblastoma from scRNA-seq analysis”

January 14 @ 12:15 pm - 1:30 pm

“Insight into tumor-stroma interactions in medulloblastoma from scRNA-seq analysis”

Timothy R. Gershon, MD, PhD

Dr. Gershon is a pediatric neurologist whose research interests focus on neurobiology of cerebellar development and medulloblastoma, the most common malignant brain tumor in children.

While many medulloblastoma patients achieve long-term survival through combined radiation and chemotherapy, this treatment causes long-term neuro-cognitive impairment and significant risk of incurable recurrence. Ongoing work in the Gershon Lab is examining the processes that support developmental brain growth as potential oncogenic mechanisms and examining which mechanisms may be targeted in novel therapies to treat medulloblastoma.
