I am a neuro-oncologist specializing in more than 35 forms of nervous system cancers, with a research focus on glioblastoma. I serve as an associate professor in the neurology department at the OSUCCC – James and working alongside the talented cancer researchers and clinicians in the division of neuro-oncology is a truly rewarding experience. At The James, we are advocates for our patients and continuously seek new ways to provide the most effective treatments possible.

Treating nervous system cancers requires a management approach that includes not just one physician but a team of specialists, including neurosurgeons, radiation oncologists, pathologists, neuroimaging specialists and more. Our team works with innovative technologies to perform genetic and molecular analysis of brain tumors. The combination of our expertise and technological capabilities at The James means patients receive individualized treatment plans for their specific needs.

Research is also a major component of my career. I participate in the translational therapeutics research program at the OSUCCC – James, where I design clinical trials and targeted therapies. My research focus is on glioblastoma and metastatic disease in the central nervous system.

I am also interested in developing alternative cancer therapies. Recently, I investigated a therapy for brain tumors utilizing components of the citrus, ginger and mushroom families that was published in the journal Tumor Biology. My work has also been published in several other top medical journals, including Anticancer Research and Neuro-Oncology.

Consulting and Related Relationships

At The Ohio State University Wexner Medical Center, we support a faculty member’s research and consulting in collaboration with medical device, research and/or drug companies because a faculty member’s expertise can guide important advancements in the practice of medicine and improve patient care. In order to provide effective management of these relationships, the university requires annual disclosures from all faculty members with external interests related to their university responsibilities. As of 3/28/2017, Dr. Giglio has reported no financial relationships with medical device, research and/or drug companies.
