Human Oncology & Pathogenesis Program
The Ingo Mellinghoff Lab
Our laboratory focuses on the study of molecular pathways that regulate brain tumor growth. Our long-term goal is to develop therapeutic paradigms that target specific properties of primary brain tumors, including genetic alterations in cancer signaling pathways, unique aspects of brain tumor metabolism, or interactions of brain tumor cells with their brain microenvironment. Our studies in experimental brain tumor models are closely linked to the evaluation of novel agents in early-phase clinical trials.

Doctors and faculty members often work with pharmaceutical, device, biotechnology, and life sciences companies, and other organizations outside of MSK, to find safe and effective cancer treatments, to improve patient care, and to educate the health care community.
MSK requires doctors and faculty members to report (“disclose”) the relationships and financial interests they have with external entities. As a commitment to transparency with our community, we make that information available to the public.
