Brain Cancer

The world-renowned experts at the OSUCCC – James are transforming the way brain cancers are prevented, detected and treated.

Today, cancer is no longer solely defined by location or even by stage. We know there is no routine cancer, and there is no routine brain cancer.

Brain cancer is a complex disease. Each patient’s cancer is different, behaving differently in the bodies they’re in and calling for a tailored, individualized treatment plan for each patient.

To deliver the most effective brain cancer detection and treatment, our nationally renowned experts identify and understand cancer at the biologic and genetic levels, unlocking the molecular code of a patient’s disease and pinpointing what makes each cancer grow — then discovering what stops it.

Our team of brain cancer subspecialists spans a broad range of disciplines: from neuro-oncologists and radiation oncologists to neurosurgeons, neuropathologists, genetic scientists and more — all specializing in brain cancer (and only brain cancer) research, prevention, detection, treatment and cure.

It’s that subspecialization and singular focus that enable us to discover, develop and deliver the most targeted therapies for each individual brain cancer patient.

And that means our collective expertise leads to improved outcomes, faster responses, fewer side effects and more hope for cancer patients everywhere.


Gliomas are a type of adult brain tumor that occurs in the brain and arises from glial cells, which normally support other brain cells but when defective can form several types of tumors that are difficult to treat, OSUCCC – James experts are focused on preventing, detecting and treating gliomas.

Other Brain Cancers

Brain tumors begin as abnormal growths of cells. Cancerous brain tumors grow quickly and can spread into other areas of the brain or body. The OSUCCC – James is consistently paving the way in learning more about what causes brain cancer — leading to even more highly targeted prevention, care and treatment.

Spine Cancer

Spine and bone sarcoma commonly forms in the ends of the long bones of the body, which include bones of the arms and legs. The OSUCCC – James is a world leader in spine & bone sarcoma treatment, developing some of the very latest advancements that targeting sarcoma genes. In fact, our spine & sarcoma subspecialists actually help write national clinical guidelines for treating specific spine & bone sarcomas.

Spine Tumors

Spine tumors are abnormal growths of tissue found in and around the spine. At the OSUCCC – James, spine tumor patients have a multidisciplinary team of experts including researchers who help sequence tumors to identify key molecules that fuel each patient’s cancer and who then develop drugs that target only those particular molecules.
