Research

The Northwestern Brain Tumor Institute unites teams of experts from related, yet diverse disciplines to infuse new knowledge and perspectives into cancer care and to advance our basic, clinical, and translational science efforts.

The NBTI's interdisciplinary approach holds promise for something greater than the sum of individual faculty efforts. Our teams of faculty clinicians and scientists are focused on identifying and treating brain cancers early, determining factors that contribute to their development, researching new therapies and investigational drugs, developing effective new cancer treatments and enhancing our patients' quality of life.

The result of this commitment is the presence of some of the country's most esteemed clinical and basic research scientists, whose groundbreaking efforts are strengthened by the presence of Northwestern's widely recognized Stem Cell Research Lab and one of the nation's few Centers for Nanotechnology.
