Dr. Finlay is an academic pediatric oncologist whose professional focus for over 35 years has been on improving outcomes for children, adolescents and young adults with brain cancer. Since 1991, he have initiated, conducted, completed and published results of six sequential multi-national, prospective clinical trials, both for newly-diagnosed young children with malignant brain tumors (the Head Start Consortium) as well as for newly-diagnosed patients with CNS germ cell tumors (the International CNS Germ Cell Tumor Consortium); new clinical trials under both Consortia are currently underway under my direction, with the Clinical Trials Office for both at Nationwide Children’s Hospital.
