Author: Cedars-Sinai

My name is John Yu. I'm a Professor and Vice Chair in the Department of Neurosurgery at Cedars-Sinai Medical Center. I'm also the Director of the Brain Tumor Program, the Gamma Knife Program, and the Surgical Neuro-Oncology Program. I think the most important part of my job is to really give patients hope. Patients with malignant brain cancer, specifically neuroblastoma, have a survival of just over a year. We've been working on brain cancer vaccines for the last fifteen years.

We've shown in previous clinical trials that survivals have been doubled or tripled with this vaccine. We formed the largest clinical trial in brain cancer vaccines in the country and we hope to show the near future that this will be the best way to treat patients with brain cancers. Even with those patients with the most devastating diseases, with the research that we're doing, I think we can give them real hope and an opportunity to have a good outcome.
