Welcome to the Neuro-Oncology and Blood-Brain Barrier Program. Since 1981, our team of physicians, nurses, neuropsychologists and preclinical researchers has worked to meet the challenges of successfully treating people with brain tumors by outwitting the brain's natural defense, the blood-brain barrier, while also protecting cognitive functions. The goal of the Blood-Brain Barrier (BBB) Program is not only to prolong patients' length of survival, but also to improve the quality of their survival through ongoing research.
