Roger Packer's Story

Roger Packer

Roger J. Packer, MD, Senior Vice President, Center for Neuroscience and Behavioral Medicine, has been a key figure in the national movement in innovation and care of children with brain tumors, where he says research is “accelerating discovery” in the field. That has been magnified in the past five to seven years, he says, where there have been dramatic advances in the understanding of the biology of these tumors. Still, Dr. Packer himself is never satisfied, because children are still stricken with deadly brain tumors, and there is a need for improved treatment, with fewer side-effects.
