Dr. Nazemi has a particular interest in continued and further collaboration in clinical trials, both within the Children's Oncology Group and in smaller multi-institutional collaborative groups. This brings the frontier of treatment for brain tumors to patients in Oregon and allows them to be home in their own environment during their treatment course. Dr. Nazemi is the institutional Principal Investigator for multiple national clinical trials in brain tumor research. She also has an interest in the role that neuro-imaging has in treatment decisions, particularly with regards to radiographic impression of tumor progression vs. pseudoprogression.
