Dr Chiocca’s ACTIVE PROJECTS

Active Projects

  • Preclinical evaluation of oncolytic viruses for glioma therapy: This project focuses on the development of a recombinant Herpes virus that specifically kills brain cancer cells and is being prepared for clinical studies.
  • Gene, viral, and immuno- therapy of brain tumors: This project studies how to circumvent the host responses that limit the efficacy of novel engineered viruses that target gliomas as well as how to stimulate the antitumor immune response.
  • Novel anti-invasive and anti-angiogenic drugs for gliomas: This study focuses on understanding the molecular mechanisms of a novel class of inhibitors, called indirubins, which reduce tumor growth and dispersion in the brain.
