Overview

The Schonthal lab performs preclinical cancer research and pursues anticancer drug development. The main focus is on brain malignancies, which include primary brain cancers (such as glioblastoma) and secondary brain cancers (such as melanoma or breast cancer that has spread to the brain). The work is done in collaboration with Dr. Thomas Chen, Director of the USC Brain Tumor Group, and Dr. Florence Hofman from the Department of Pathology. This joint approach supports interdisciplinary efforts that translate laboratory findings to patient applications.
