Clinical Neuro-Oncology

Dr. Rajiv Magge (left) joins neuro-oncology director Dr. Howard Fine and stereotactic radiosurgery director Dr. Susan Pannullo in providing the best multidisciplinary care for neuro-oncology patients.

The Clinical Neuro-Oncology Program at the Weill Cornell Brain and Spine Center offers world-class research and medical treatment for cancers affecting the brain and spine. Our experts treat all types of malignant adult and pediatric brain tumors, including primary and metastatic tumors. The program sees hundreds of patients each year with either newly diagnosed and recurrent tumors.

Conditions We Treat

Brain Tumor Clinical Trial for Glioblastoma Multiforme (GBM) and Gliosarcoma

The Weill Cornell Medicine Brain and Spine Center is proud to introduce an innovative new clinical trial for recurrent brain tumors. Using a combination of the latest in viral therapy and immunotherapy, this trial (called CAPTIVE) uses an adenovirus and an immune checkpoint inhibitor to tackle GBM or gliosarcoma tumors that recur after initial treatment.

Convection-Enhanced Delivery of 124I-8H9 for Patients With Non-Progressive Diffuse Pontine Gliomas Previously Treated With External Beam Radiation Therapy

This study tests an innovative convection-enhanced delivery (CED) technique that places a radioactive therapeutic agent (124I-8H9) at the site of the tumor using a surgically placed cannula.

Postdoctoral Position in Biotechnology and CNS Drug Delivery at Weill Cornell Medicine

A postdoctoral researcher position is available immediately in the Children’s Brain Tumor Project (CBTP) laboratory in the Department of Neurological Surgery at Weill Cornell Medicine to study preclinical therapeutic delivery strategies. Using various drug delivery approaches including convection-enhanced delivery (CED), intra-arterial delivery, and focused ultrasound, candidate therapeutic agents are assayed using animal models.

Tree of Life Video The Weill Cornell Brain Tumor Project, also known as the New York Brain Tumor Project, is the research arm of the Weill Cornell Brain Tumor Center.

Embracing New Technologies to Save Lives

The personal computer had not yet been invented when Rohan Ramakrishna was born in 1980, but in the intervening decades his life has mirrored the technological revolution. As innovative products were developed and released at mind-boggling speed, Ramakrishna was growing up in Pennsylvania, where his fascination for science and technology was cultivated. Now a neurosurgeon at the Weill Cornell Medicine Brain and Spine Center, Ramakrishna's curiosity drives him to be a leader in learning and using new neurosurgical technologies that are saving patient lives.

A Prospective, Multi-center Trial of NovoTTF-100A Together With Temozolomide Compared to Temozolomide Alone in Patients with Newly Diagnosed GBM

This randomized controlled clinical trial sets to compare treatment using a new experimental device, the NovoTTF-100A, together with maintenance Temozolomide, to maintenance Temozolomide alone. Contact Dr. Susan Pannullo: 212-746-2438

Cognitive Remediation

Dr. Jessica Spat-Lemus and Amanda Sacks-Zimmerman

The comprehensive Cognitive Remediation Program focuses on improving working memory, attention, and focus. A new five-week version of the program includes personal consultation, telephone sessions, and online components designed to improve performance in a wide range of cognitive tasks.

Conditions We Treat

Laser Surgery Program

Drs. Ramakrishna, Schwartz, Hoffman, and Greenfield have expertise in laser surgery

The Laser Surgery Program at the Weill Cornell Brain and Spine Center uses state-of-the-art laser interstitial thermal therapy (LITT) to treat patients with certain brain lesions using tiny beams of light instead of radiation. These beams heat the lesion and destroy it without damaging surrounding healthy brain tissue, without subjecting patients to the potential side effects of radiation.
