Division Chief’s Message

Welcome to the Division of Neuro-Oncology website. Faculty within our division have dedicated their lives to the study and treatment of primary and secondary brain tumors as well as neurologic complications of systemic cancers and their treatments.

I joined Northwestern Medicine as I see unique opportunities to stimulate and advance research to treat complex brain tumors. Northwestern unites the excellence and expertise in neurosurgery, neurology, oncology, cancer drug discovery and development that is needed to further advance the care of patients suffering from tumors in the brain.

Our faculty collaborate with an exceptional collection of scientists and clinicians across various specialties. In my role as division chief, I will foster continued and even deeper collaborations that will move us rapidly toward new discoveries allowing for the most effective treatments for our patients. We are dedicated to the highest standards of care for patients affected with tumors or complications in the brain and nervous system. Our great team of physicians and researchers will be serving patients in a unified manner throughout the NM network.

We welcome all comments, suggestions and questions. You may contact us for more information via email.
