This year in the United States, over 22,000 people will be diagnosed with a primary brain or spinal tumor. Of these, more than 13,000, many of them younger than 21 years old, will die of their disease. New treatment modalities are critical in the battle against cancer.

Adrienne Scheck, PhD, is an associate professor of neurobiology at Barrow Neurological Institute.

Dr. Scheck’s expertise includes neuro-oncology. She is a member of the American Association for Cancer Research, Society for Neuro-Oncology, American Association for Cancer Research, American Society for Biochemistry and Molecular Biology, Women in Cancer Research, and the American Association for the Advancement of Science.

Dr. Scheck’s work consists mainly of translational research to develop novel adjuvant therapies for the treatment of brain tumors. She also use various molecular and molecular genetic techniques to investigate why current therapies sometimes fail.
