About Us

Inspired by the bravery of our patients, we have become unafraid to pursue even outrageous possibilities.
We Believe

Inspired by the bravery of our patients, we have become unafraid to pursue even outrageous possibilities.

Established in 1937, The Preston Robert Tisch Brain Tumor Center was one of the first brain tumor research and clinical programs in the United States. Since then, it has advanced to become one of the best pediatric and adult neuro-oncology programs in the world—leading the way in comprehensive care that combines research breakthroughs, clinical trials and the newest therapies. The National Cancer Institute (NCI) has given our center the highest rating of “outstanding” for each of the last 10 years. 

Our patients are the reason we strive to deliver hope every day. They come here for the most advanced treatments. Often these are therapies that are not available anywhere else. Our center sees up to 800 new adult brain tumor patients and up to 75 new pediatric brain tumor patients per year from across the country and around the world. We are committed to providing them the very best care, and believe an interdisciplinary approach is vital. Care teams meet daily to discuss patients’ medical and psychosocial needs and bring every viewpoint to the table.
