Improving the diagnosis and treatment of brain and other cancers

Thank you for visiting Dr. Beroukhim's giving fund page!

Brain cancers are devastating and often incurable tumors that afflict over 20,000 people in the United States every year. They occur in adults and in children and comprise many subtypes including gliomas, meningiomas, and medulloblastomas. Like other cancers, they are caused by genetic mutations that lead cancer cells to grow uncontrollably. Our group seeks to understand these mutations, how they predict the behavior of these cancers, and how they this knowledge can be leveraged to find new treatments.

Our group consists of an interdisciplinary team of physicians, geneticists, computational scientists, and biologists. We apply the latest genomic tools to understand how brain cancers in adults and children form and learn to resist treatment. Our discoveries have led to testing of new approaches to treat people with gliomas, medulloblastomas, and meningiomas, and new diagnostic tests for children with life-threatening brain tumors. We also develop technologies used to study many other cancer types and have made significant advances in the study of cancers of the uterus, prostate, and kidneys.

Your contribution can help propel this research forward. If you would like to learn more about our work, please see Dr. Beroukhim's research profile here. Thank you for your thoughtful generosity.
