About Our Center
Subependymomas and ependymomas are primary central nervous system (CNS) brain tumors that grow slowly and located in the ependymal cells near the ventricles of the brain and spinal cord. Ependymal tumors are rare, and found more commonly in children than adults.
Currently there is minimal information available to guide decision-making for patients facing ependymal tumors and their physicians. The Johns Hopkins Comprehensive Subependymoma and Ependymoma Research Center conducts basic science, translational and clinical practice research with the goals of optimizing current treatment options and developing new therapies that will positively impact the care and lives of patients with these brain tumors.
