Large-Scale Research Programs


Collaborating across the labs at UCSF, in addition to our colleagues worldwide, allows us to leverage the collective expertise of leading clinicians and scientists across multiple disciplines.

We lead several coordinated research programs, each addressing a specific focus or challenge in brain tumor research: 

  • UCSF Brain Tumor SPORE: Funded by the National Cancer Institute, this Specialized Program of Research Excellence (SPORE) focuses on the development of new therapeutic approaches for brain tumor treatment. 
  • UCSF Wolfe Meningioma Program Project: We are bringing together UCSF’s leading clinicians and scientists to solve the problems that currently limit our ability to understand meningioma biology and provide more effective therapy to meningioma patients.
