Eric Raabe, M.D., Ph.D., instructor in oncology in the Division of Pediatric Oncology. As a physician-scientist, he will focus on pediatric brain tumor research.
Eric was a neural science major at Brown University. He went on to receive his M.D. and Ph.D. from the University Of Cincinnati College Of Medicine. From there, he completed his pediatric internship and residency at Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia. After spending a year working in Africa as part of the Baylor International Pediatric AIDS Initiative, Eric came to Johns Hopkins as a pediatric oncology fellow. Working in the laboratory of Dr. Charles Eberhart in Neuropathology, Eric successfully established a human neural stem cell system to create genetically accurate models of pediatric brain tumors.
With his interest is Neuro-Oncology, Eric will work closely with Dr. Ken Cohen. He also will attend on the inpatients service and see patients in the children’s oncology outpatient clinic, including Pediatric Neuro-Oncology referrals.
Eric will continue his research in the new Smith Building of the Wilmer Eye Institute in the Neuropathology Division where he will continue to collaborate with and be mentored by Dr. Charles Eberhart. Collaborating with colleagues in neuropathology and the Wilmer Eye Institute will strengthen the multidisciplinary research approach at Johns Hopkins and enrich the research environment of the Kimmel Cancer Center.
