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.
