Meet Our Lead Investigators

We are proud to introduce the Lead Investigators of each of our five Centers of Excellence. Each one of these investigators works tirelessly on behalf of families in the pursuit of safer, more effective treatments for children. They all value post-mortem tissue as the raw material for this exciting, new research aimed at finding the answer to the question, “Why are current brain cancer treatments failing children?” They are committed to processing these specimens to maximize downstream analysis, and most importantly, they work collaboratively across institutions.
