Research Description:

Dr. Kornblum’s laboratory works in the areas of neurodevelopment, neural repair and brain tumors. His work investigates the factors that drive these processes. He is one of the co-discoverers of stem cell-like cells in brain tumors. These cells are thought to be critical means by which brain tumors resist therapies. Dr. Kornblum’s laboratory is investigating a number of means to overcome this therapeutic resistance. In addition to brain tumors, Dr. Kornblum’s research is relevant to the areas of autism, spinal cord injury, stroke and cerebral palsy, as well as other developmental disorders of the nervous system.
