Specialties: Adult and pediatric brain tumors, including glioma

Dr. Schulte specializes in treatment of adolescent and adult glioma and neurofibromatosis, with a focus on optimizing transitions of care between pediatric and adult medical care. Part of this involves expanding on opportunities for clinical trial involvement, to match patients to trials that are appropriate for them, as adolescents may be eligible for both adult and pediatric clinical trials. Other important aspects include improvements to supportive care services for patients in the adolescent and young adult population. 

Dr. Schulte's other interests include molecular diagnostics and targeted therapies, with particular insight into clinical trials tailored to tumors with specific gene alterations.
