Short description

Clinical Brain Tumor Research focuses on optimizing diagnosis, treatment and care of patients with various types of brain tumors. We perform interventional, observational and epidemiological studies. We are also involved in translational studies in close collaboration with basic researchers. The overall goals of the Clinical Brain Tumor Group are:

• Stimulate evidence-based research and teaching with focus on brain tumors
• Provide a stimulating scientific environment in clinical neuro-oncology
• Encourage interdisciplinary collaborations with basic scientists within the field
• Improve outcomes in brain tumor patients
