Cerebellar pilocytic astrocytoma
Research & Innovation
Dana-Farber/Children's Hospital Cancer Center is involved in clinical trials for developing drugs that target the specific cause of a cancer. Chemotherapy currently cannot differentiate normal cells from cancerous cells, and unfortunately normal cells are often also killed during chemotherapy. These new drugs could identify which cells are cancerous and attack the specific origin of the cancer. Learn more about the research and innovations happening at our Brain Tumor Program.
