Scientists have long known the complexity of the cells in brain tumors and understood them to be relatively fixed or static, but a discovery by researchers at the U-M Department of Neurosurgery and the Rogel Cancer is challenging this understanding. Pedro Lowenstein, M.D., Ph.D., the Richard C. Schneider Collegiate Professor of Neurosurgery, shares insights on the new study, finding that these aggressive tumors contain highly active cells that move throughout the tissue in complicated patterns. The faculty expert further explains the implications for future treatments of brain tumors.
