Welcome to the Brain and Eye Tumor Research Group at Johns Hopkins

We are a multidisciplinary research group focused on improving diagnosis and treatment of patients with tumors in the brain and eye.  We utilize multi-omics approaches to identify the molecular signaling pathways that distinguish tumors from normal human tissue and drive cancer cell’s rapid growth and survival. We are also engaged in preclinical testing of pharmacological agents that target these pathways and work toward rapidly translating our studies into new clinical trials. Our laboratory is located in the state-of-the art Smith Research Building on the Johns Hopkins’ medical campus in downtown Baltimore. The laboratory is run by several experienced investigators, including Charles Eberhart, M.D., Ph.D., Director of Neuropathology and Ophthalmic Pathology; Eric Raabe, M.D., Ph.D., Associate Professor of Pediatric Neuro-Oncology; and Jeffrey Rubens, M.D., Assistant Professor of Pediatric Neuro-Oncology.
