Kaisorn Chaichana, currently a neurosurgery resident at The Johns Hopkins Hospital, is completing a year-long research fellowship funded by the American Brain Tumor Association (ABTA). Kaisorn received his B.S. in 2003 from the University of Utah and majored in Biology.
Kaisorn joined the Brain Tumor Stem Cell Lab in June 2006. He is interested in studying the effects of epidermal growth factor (EGF) on the migration of normal neural stem cell and tumor stem cell migration. In addition, he is trying to determine the phenotype of the invading brain tumor cells that make brain tumors resistant to treatment.
