Brain Tumors: Advancing Stem Cell Therapies - 2011 CIRM Grantee Meeting

Karen Aboody speaks at the 2011 CIRM Grantee Meeting about the developing a stem cell-based clinical trial for malignant brain tumors. Dr. Aboody and her team at the City of Hope Hospital medical center in Duarte, have been funded by CIRM to create a human neural cell line with the ability to target brain tumor cells and deliver a powerful chemotherapeutic agent selectively at tumor sites, effectively destroying invasive glioma cells while sparing normal tissues.
