Neuro-Oncology Laboratory

The Neuro-Oncology laboratory staff is affiliated with the world-renown Winship Cancer Institute at Emory University and led by Dr. Cory Adamson.

Our Neuro-Oncology laboratory is interested in exploring genomic and proteomic alterations in brain tumorigenesis, as well as their prognostic and therapeutic significance. We use a myriad of in vitro and in vivo models to better characterize important pathways that may be genetically or pharmacologically targeted in order to design future therapeutic approaches. Past projects have focused on exploring specific oncogenes and migration-related genes, epigenetic regulation of gene expression, and protein association studies in malignant brain tumors.
