Program Director, Pediatric Neuro-oncology Fellowship
Stephen W. Gilheeney, MD, MMS

I am a pediatric oncologist who specializes in treating children and young adults with brain and spinal tumors. I am a member of a dedicated and compassionate multidisciplinary team of pediatric specialists at Memorial Sloan Kettering that includes radiation oncologists, neurosurgeons, neuroradiologists, and neurologists.

In my research, I am developing treatment strategies to effectively target cancer cells and that have minimal side effects. I collaborate with my colleagues here at Memorial Sloan Kettering and with researchers at other centers across the United States, as well as industry partners, to develop new treatments.
