Overview

After completing his residency and fellowship at Children’s Hospital Los Angeles, Dr. Robison completed an additional fellowship in Pediatric Neuro-Oncology at the Dana-Farber / Children’s Hospital Cancer Center in Boston. He served as clinical instructor at Harvard Medical School and attending staff in the Pediatric Neuro-Oncology Program at Dana Farber Cancer Institute and Boston Children’s Hospital from 2010 to 2013.

In April 2013 he joined the faculty of the University of Southern California Keck School of Medicine as assistant professor of pediatrics, and now serves as attending staff in the Pediatric Neuro-Oncology Program at Children's Hospital Los Angeles.

Dr. Robison's primary research focus is developing clinical trials that test new strategies in the treatment of children with brain tumors. Specific areas of interest include molecular targeted treatment of low-grade glioma, diffuse pontine glioma, and medulloblastoma; novel treatments targeting the tumor microenvironment, including antiangiogenic and immunomodulatory strategies; and neurofibromatosis.
