Welcome to the Kasahara Lab

Our aim is to develop a collaborative trans-disciplinary research program with a focus on the development of novel strategies for gene therapy, oncolytic virotherapy, and immunotherapy of gliomas and other cancers. 

A key feature of our research program is our focus on clinical translation and close collaboration with world-class clinicians and researchers in neurosurgery, neuro-oncology, and radiation oncology at UCSF, as well as biotech partners providing expertise in genetic engineering, bio-manufacturing, bioanalytics, and clinical protocol development.
