Biography

Dr. Chintagumpala is the principal investigator of two multi-institutional studies designed to improve survival in patients with osteosarcoma and the treatment of medulloblastoma. He is a member of the Brain Tumor Committee and study chairman for a new protocol for children with low-grade gliomas. He is also a key investigator in a study to better delineate the risk factors for the development of metastases in children with retinoblastomas, and a gene therapy study at the Texas Children's Cancer Center for the treatment of children with retinoblastomas.
