Meyer Children’s Hospital
After specialization in Neurosurgery at the University of Brescia (Italy), Dr. Mirko Scagnet continued his training as a pediatric neurosurgeon at the Children Hospital of Philadelphia, University of Pittsburgh Medical Center (UPMC), Boston Children's Hospital, The Hospital for Sick Children (Toronto, Canada), Universitè Paris Diderot (Paris, France), & Hopital Timone Enfants (Marseille, France).
Dr. Scagnet deals with endoscopic endonasal surgery of the skull base (pituitary adenomas, craniopharyngiomas, chordomas of the clivus) with use of 3D endoscope, neuroncology for the treatment of pediatric brain tumors with interventions integrated with ultrasound and neuronavigation, treatment of craniostenosis with minimally invasive techniques, endoscopic treatment of hydrocephalus, and treatment of vertebral and cranial malformations.
It is my privilege to partner with The Children’s Brain Tumor Network (CBTN), which is at the forefront of pediatric genetic research.

Exploring the Possible Role of Mutations in MTOR pathway Genes in the Pathogenesis of DNET tumors
Dysembryoplastic neuroepithelial tumors (DNET) genetic origins are little understood. Using samples from CBTN BioBank, researchers are conducting studies to help answer questions about their development to identify novel drug therapies.

Molecular Characterization of Glioneuronal Tumor with Neuropil-like Island (GTNI)
Our research focuses on genetic studies of poor responder pediatric brain tumors. In particular, we are studying the genetic basis of pediatric Glioblastoma Multiforme (pGBM) and Glioneuronal tumor with neuropil-like islands (GTNI) through different techniques of molecular biology, array-CGH andDown
