Improving Patient Outcomes
Understanding the "how" of brain cancer is the key to creating less invasive and more effective treatments for GBM patients. In addition to research in the lab, students are involved with Students for the Upper Michigan Brain Tumor Center - a student organization that advocates on behalf of cancer patients and their families through fundraisers, volunteering, and the ChemoCare basket program.
Student Research Experience
Hands-on research experience, interaction with field professionals, opportunities for research fellowships, and working alongside experienced professors in an established lab that has ties all across the country. At UMBTC, Students learn research techniques while improving the neuro-oncology field's understanding of glioblastoma multiforme - ultimately improving treatment methods and outcomes.
