“I have a strong interest in brain tumors and my research involves designing a new chemotherapy wafer that can be implanted during surgery after a tumor has been resected, particularly Glioblastoma Multiforme (GBM). GBMs are very aggressive primary brain tumors which carry a short life expectancy. The wafer delivers the chemo directly to the brain, targeting invasive tumor cells that cannot be seen at the time of surgery.”
