Tina Young Poussaint | Publications

I have been inspired by my patients and their families during my career. In particular, my research has focused on the effective care of children through characterization of direct or surrogate imaging markers to improve understanding of physiologic and metabolic profiles of pediatric brain tumors at diagnosis and after therapy.

During college, 2 medicine career exploration projects stimulated me to pursue medicine as my life work. A career in medicine includes my love of science and dedication to helping people. Patient care, teaching and research remain the hallmark of my career.
