Neurosurgery, Department of Surgery at City of Hope Comprehensive Cancer
Center and the Beckman Research Institute in Los Angeles, California. His clinical
practice focuses on the surgical and medical care of patients with brain and spine
tumors. In the laboratory his team investigates the intersection of stem cell biology
and neuro oncology, specifically identifying the cells from which brain tumors arise
and whether treatment resistant cells can be selectively targeted to help patients live
longer. A prolific author, Jandial has authored/edited 7 books and over 35 papers. He
