Eric Michael Thompson
Associate Professor of Neurosurgery

My translational and clinical research focus is pediatric brain tumors. My translational research involves 1) using transgenic models of diffuse intrinsic pontine glioma to characterize the mechanism of therapeutics administered via convection enhanced delivery and 2) to characterize the mechanism of immunogenicity of oncolytic viral immunotherapy in immunocompetent models of solid tumor and disseminated medulloblastoma.

My clinical research focuses on 1) using a novel peptide vaccine to target CMV antigens to treat children with recurrent medulloblastoma and malignant glioma and 2) using oncolytic poliovirus to treat children with recurrent malignant glioma.
