  • Investigator: Christopher Mcpherson
  • Co-Investigator: Alison Kastl
  • Specialties: Hematology/Oncology, Oncology, Neurosurgery, Cancer, Brain Tumors
  • Type of Study: Observational/Survey

You are being asked to participate in a research study on brain tumors. There are over 125 types of brain tumors. People with the same type of brain tumor can have very different survival and response to treatments. Many researchers are using genetic studies to better understand differences between brain tumor types and between people with the same brain tumor type. Using genetics to better understand brain tumor types could lead to improved diagnosis and treatment of brain tumors. The purpose of this study is to better understand different types of primary brain tumors using genetics.


To Be Eligible For This Study, Patients Must Have Been Diagnosed With A Benign Or Malignant Primary Brain Tumor.
