Welcome to the Program for Brain and Spinal Tumors

With the latest advances in Neuro-oncology, the UR Brain and Spinal Tumor program creates and develops the most innovative and promising treatment strategies for patients with malignant brain tumors and spinal tumors.

Born from a unique collaboration between a multi-disciplinary group of clinicians and surgeons, our continually evolving program brings together the best minds and talents in the field.

As such, this renowned program serves as a national resource for patients and clinicians across the region, by supporting research for novel therapies and access to clinical trials which serve to further our knowledge of and ability to treat neuro-oncological disease.

Visit our Translational Brain Mapping program for more information on state-of-the-art treatment.
