About

Attending Physician

Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia

Dr. Jane Minturn's research is focused on developing personalized and targeted therapeutics in tumors of the nervous system and understanding the late effects of our therapies in long-term survivors.

As part of our approach to identifying new treatments for children with brain tumors, we are members of the multi-institutional Pacific Pediatric Neuro-Oncology Consortium (PNOC) and a Children's Oncology Group (COG) Phase 1 Institution. These groups are involved in early phase clinical trials for relapsed and refractory brain tumors, with a particular focus on testing new, targeted treatments in children with brain tumors.

Our Children's Hospital team has partnered with drug development groups, and we are rapidly identifying drugs that show promise in patients with brain tumors who have no other curable option. There is a sense of urgency in our group — working collaboratively with laboratory scientists and drug development companies on rational, biologically-based therapies.
