Nationwide Children's Hospital
Lead by pediatric neurooncologist Dr. Maryam Fouladi and pediatric neurosurgeon Dr. Jeffery Leonard, the Neuro-Oncology Program is engaged through leadership and clinical trials in every major national neuro-oncology consortium including CONNECT, NEXT, PBTC, PNOC, and COG.
The Neuro-Oncology team provides international collaboration and support to peers in Central and South America through the Global Outreach Program, the first of its kind in pediatric-oncology. Through the Head Start 4 protocol, Nationwide Children's leads over 50 sites from around the world to improve the quality of survival and cure rates for young children with primitive neuro-ectodermal tumors. And we continue to treat patient families from around the globe including Canada, Poland, Saudi Arabia, South Africa, China, and throughout the United States.
