The Neuro-oncology program clinical faculty group also partners in research with multiple subspecialists in radiation oncology, neurosurgery, neurology, neuroradiology and pathology at Boston Children’s Hospital, Brigham’s and Women’s Hospital, and with the Dana-Farber/Boston Children’s Hospital pediatric cancer program in Experimental Therapeutics.
