About Speaker:
Constantinos G. Hadjipanayas is the Professor and Site Chair of the Department of Neurosurgery at Mount Sinai Downtown Union Square in New York City, New York. He is also Director of Neurosurgical Oncology for the Mount Sinai Health System and Director of the Brain Tumor Nanotechnology Laboratory in the Tisch Cancer Institute. Both as a neurosurgeon and an NIH-funded scientist, Dr. Hadjipanayis is recognized as a neuro-oncology pioneer for driving advancements in the therapy and surgical management of brain tumors. He is also an internationally recognized expert in minimally invasive, neuro-endoscopic procedures to treat disorders in the brain. In addition to his clinical interests, Dr. Hadjipanayis leads multiple cooperative group- and industry sponsored clinical trials for patients with malignant brain tumors. He was the first in North America to perform approved fluorescence-guided surgery for malignant gliomas with the use of an orphan drug known as Gliolan that can light up tumors in the operating room. He is the lead principal investigator and an Investigational New Drug (IND) holder for Gliolan in the USA. He completed a unique animal trial of brain tumors using a magnetic nanoparticle therapeutic agent developed in his laboratory that can target brain tumor cells and can also be seen by MRI.
