Benshang Qiu, Ph.D.

Dr. Qiu studies possible therapies to treat gliomas, cancerous tumors of the brain and spinal cord. Gliomas arise from glial cells, a class of cells that nourish, protect, and support neurons. Current treatments for gliomas can lead to significant cognitive damage, especially in the developing brains of young children. Qiu and his lab are using MRI imaging to develop techniques to label and track the migration of stem cells, which could be used in targeted and glioma treatments, including gene, radiation, or chemotherapies.
