Brain Tumor Center Interactions

The Brain Tumor Center (BTC) developed as part of a conscious plan to integrate the clinical and laboratory research related to brain and spine tumors. Over 70 members from 15 departments actively collaborate in laboratory, translational, and clinical studies. The membership of the center is committed to training young clinicians and investigators across the various disciplines comprising the center. The BTC forms the structural basis for interaction among the member scientists, clinicians and trainees to support the seamless integration of clinical and research activities.
