Kim Kramer, MD

I am a pediatric oncologist who specializes in the care of children with neuroblastoma and other cancers that have spread in the central nervous system (the brain and spinal cord). I am conducting translational research to better understand why this happens and to try to find more-effective treatments, particularly for relapsed disease.

In my research, I am investigating novel treatments to eliminate microscopic tumor cells in the central nervous system. These novel treatments include monoclonal antibodies attached to radioactive substances (radioimmunotherapy) that are administered directly into the cerebrospinal fluid. We remain one of the few programs in the world committed to the cure of cancers of the leptomeninges.
