Adam Q. Bauer, PhD, assistant professor of radiology, and colleagues from the Department of Radiation Oncology are receiving part of a $1.75 million grant from Siteman Cancer Center to support their research on radiation-induced brain injury.

The researchers aim to improve the quality of life for brain tumor survivors by studying how whole-brain radiation alters brain network communication and behavioral performance, and how these changes relate to cellular and molecular markers of brain injury.
