The UCLA Brain Cancer Research Center is focused on finding a cure and providing the very best care for brain tumor patients.
Debilitating diseases require revolutionary breakthroughs in research and care. Gliomas make up 80 percent of brain tumors; 75 percent of people diagnosed with gliomas will not live beyond two years. The biggest predictor of these tumors is genetics. UCLA’s Brain Cancer Research Center physicians and scientists are driven every day to end the devastation these diseases can wreak on generations of families.
The cause is not hopeless. UCLA Neurology and Neurosurgery is one of the top programs in the United States. Our renowned faculty, researchers and physicians are working day and night to solve this crisis in human health. Leading the way is Dr. Linda Liau, who has developed a personalized vaccine that doubles the survival time for patients with deadly brain cancer, and Dr. Carol Kruse, who introduced a treatment for breast cancer that has spread to the brain.
UCLA neurooncologists lead teams of experts to deliver personalized medicine for brain cancer patients and the best possible care in the nation. Their mission: develop treatments and improve patients’ quality of life and, ultimately, deliver a cure.
