Hassenfeld Children's Hospital at NYU Langone
As a neuropathologist at NYU Langone, I diagnose brain tumors and other brain diseases in children and adults. As director of molecular pathology, I oversee molecular and genomic profiling, a laboratory method that allows our team to accurately diagnose all types of brain tumors.
My clinical research focuses on identifying novel biomarkers for diagnosis and therapy. My laboratory at NYU Langone studies cancer genetics and epigenetics and examines the molecular differences between tumors at the cellular level.
Our team discovered several novel molecularly defined subtypes of brain tumors and contributed to the development of DNA methylation–based classification of brain tumors, an approach that uses machine learning and epigenetic signatures to more effectively diagnose brain tumors. My laboratory is the first in the United States to provide this test to people with brain tumors.
