Pediatric neuro-oncology is a subspecialty which relies heavily on both bench and clinical research to improve outcomes, which are sometimes dismal. The fellow will be expected to engage in either translational or clinical research during the fellowship, and support will be provided to the fellow to result in at least one presentation at a national-level conference and/or publication. Appropriate research projects will be proposed either before or early in the tenure of the fellow and will be tailored to the experience and interest of the fellow.

Recent projects have included: an analysis of the toxicity of cisplatin in medulloblastoma therapy, expanding the molecular analysis of medulloblastoma, and identification of clinical and demographic characteristics of pediatric ependymoma, for example.
