BRAF Brain Tumor Center

Doctors examining research data on their computer

The Johns Hopkins BRAF Brain Tumor Center aims to help patients with brain tumors that originated in the brain (primary brain tumors) that have a BRAF gene mutation. Our multispecialty team includes experts across neurosurgery and the Johns Hopkins Kimmel Cancer Center who provide patient care and conduct research to improve outcomes for patients with these rare tumors.


What We Do

Evaluate and treat patients with BRAF-mutated primary brain tumors.

Explore the role of new pathway inhibitors that might help treat these patients.

Partner with our basic science colleagues to discover mechanisms of resistance, clinically relevant targets and new pathway-specific drugs.
