Graner, Michael – Associate Professor

 Key areas of focus: brain tumor, exosomes, neurological tissue samples

Dr. Graner’s laboratory pioneered the field of brain tumor exosomes/extracellular vesicles in all their aspects: biology, physiology, immunology, pathology, and as biomarkers of disease, and continues to be a major source of exosome resources for the Campus and beyond.  We combine this expertise with our duties involving the Neurosurgery Neural Tissue Bank where we perform drug screening on patient-derived tumor cell cultures to determine potential personalized treatment regimens. Our access to neurosurgical samples allows for our many studies in areas such as brain tumors, traumatic brain injury, stroke, multiple sclerosis, and other neurological diseases and disorders.
