    About This Project

    Malignant Brain Tumors will kill over 13,000 cancer patients this year in the United States alone; brain tumors being the leading cause of death due to solid tumors in children. However, new clinical trials have begun investigating high fat (Ketogenic) diets as potential and promising therapeutics. We want to look at how these high-fat diets weaken tumor cells to radiation, potentially making brain tumors respond better to radiation therapy.
