The Glioblastoma Drug Discovery Group announces that osimertinib significantly prolongs the survival of immunocompromised mice bearing intracranial EGFRvIII-positive glioblastoma! These data warrant the commencement of studies designed to test osimertinib’s safety and efficacy in GBM patients.
The Glioblastoma Drug Discovery Group is proud to have brain tumor survivor, Dr. Steven Keating, Ph.D., as a volunteer advisor. Dr. Keating is a strong proponent of curiosity and open patient data, having discovered his own brain tumor during a voluntary academic scan. Since Dr. Keating had a successful brain tumor removal surgery via awake craniotomy in 2014, he has a unique and powerful perspective on the future of brain tumor therapies. He will help us accelerate the development and characterization of our preclinical models for the adolescent and young adult age category. We are very excited to have Dr. Keating join our team!
