Dr Michael Taylor is revealing genetic changes in childhood brain cancer.

Medulloblastoma is the most common brain cancer in children. If this cancer comes back after treatment, it becomes increasingly difficult to treat. Dr Michael Taylor and an international team discovered that the genetics of medulloblastoma changes dramatically when it returns, which will help find more effective treatments.

Dr Taylor is the recipient of the Brain Tumour Foundation of Canada Impact Grant of the Canadian Cancer Society and Brain Canada.
