About the Kesari Lab  


For the ever-growing number of patients with brain or neurologic tumors, the need for better treatments and management strategies is acute. Research at the Kesari Laboratory seeks to integrate clinical, pre-clinical and basic science to improve the understanding of brain tumor biology. By combining laboratory and clinical data, we hope to open a new avenue toward therapies tailored to individual patients.
