At the Sylvester's Brain Tumor Initiative, our researchers are working tirelessly to develop new treatments for all brain tumors - cancerous or benign.
We are a multidisciplinary team, made up of more than 100 skilled surgeons, physicians, nurses, and researchers from several departments, including neurosurgery, medical oncology, radiation oncology, neurology, pathology, endocrinology, ophthalmology, orthopaedics, and otolaryngology.
We are advancing the treatment of brain and other central nervous system tumors. By translating scientific progress into novel treatments, we are able to provide crucial resources and support to our patients, their families, and caregivers.
We’re striving to reduce the devastating burden of brain tumors through research, education, and the delivery of the finest patient care.
