Weekly Tumor Board Meetings at the Penn Brain Tumor Center

Composed of dedicated radiologists, pathologists, clinical trial investigators, neurosurgeons and neuro-oncologists, the Tumor Board at the Penn Brain Center meets weekly to consider new brain tumor cases, and current cases that present challenges.

The Tumor Board’s mission is to reach consensus, when possible, on approaches to treatment, improve outcomes and the standard of care for brain tumor patients at Penn Medicine. Penn’s Tumor Board acts as a source of consultation for clinicians, and as a conduit to innovative therapies and clinical trials for patients.
