Mai Dang, MD, PhD

Assistant Professor, Neurology

My lab is investigating novel ways to modulate the tumor immune microenvironment to enhance the efficacy of treatment for brain tumors and to improve on their safety for children. We use genetic and orthotopic tumor models and utilize a wide range of tools including single cell RNAseq, CyTOF, and MR and PET imaging. Our goals are to understand the fundamental mechanisms driven by the tumor microenvironment that impede robust treatment response and to reverse them to ultimately improve outcomes in children with brain tumors.
