We are a neurosurgical oncology lab at the University of Pennsylvania Perelman School of Medicine investigating the immune-modulating properties of IDH-mutant glioma. Our ultimate purpose lies in the lives of our patients and the eradication of this immunosuppressive and universally fatal disease. Read more about our work here.
