The Department of Neurological Surgery, in collaboration with Medical Oncology, Radiation Oncology, Endocrinology, Otolaryngology, and Neuroradiology, is committed to improving the current diagnosis, treatment, and outcomes of brain tumor patients through a wide variety of innovative clinical research trials.
We have one of the largest, most active brain tumor clinical trial programs in the United States. Because of our expertise and commitment to brain tumor research, a number of these clinical trials have been specifically developed by our scientists and clinical specialists and are available only at Washington University.
In addition, we collaborate with other major brain tumor centers across the country on multi-center clinical trials, all designed to potentially improve upon the high quality, standard-of-care treatments currently available to patients. Knowledge gained in these clinical trials also significantly benefits future brain tumor patients.
