ABOUT THE KESARI LAB
DR. SANTOSH KESARI
SANTOSH KESARI, MD, PhD
His research investigates the biology of gliomas with the aim of developing new therapeutics for patients with brain tumors. He has long-standing interest in neural development and cancer stem cells and is focused on their role in the formation of brain tumors and resistance to treatments.
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.
