Stanford Brain Metastases Consortium
The Stanford Brain Metastases Consortium is a unique partnership between scientists, physicians and surgeons from across the Stanford community, that brings together experts in research and clinical care of brain metastases. Through more focused and collaborative efforts, our goal is to increase the number of available clinical trials and collaborative publications, and to enhance our patients' experience through a team-based approach to care.
The Brain Metastases Consortium facilitates collaborative research between the many exceptional researchers and clinicians at Stanford University. These projects involve specialists from different departments, whose synergistic talents and interests when combined, exponentially advance our understanding of, and capacity to treat, metastatic brain tumors. Interests include cancer biology, radiation oncology, neuroscience, immunology, medical oncology, neurosurgery, physics, bio-engineering, neuro oncology, and population science, among others.
