Annette G. Strauss Center for Neuro-Oncology
The Annette G. Strauss Center for Neuro-Oncology is the cornerstone of UT Southwestern Medical Center’s Neuro-Oncology Program. Its focus is to improve treatments available for patients, both inpatients and outpatients, and conduct research of tumors of the central nervous system, including benign and malignant brain and spinal-cord tumors.
The Annette Strauss Center for Neuro-Oncology is comprised of multidisciplinary cancer professionals that are largely involved in innovative clinical research trials. Researchers are actively involved in projects aimed at creating new and improving existing treatments for childhood and adult brain malignancies. Exciting discoveries from these trials are routinely being translated into clinical reality.
Our researchers are actively involved in exploring new possibilities of utilizing new treatment modalities in the fight against central nervous system tumors. An obstacle in the development of successful therapies for brain tumors is our lack of understanding of the underlying etiology of this disease process.
