Pituitary Clinical Trials,
Genomic Sequencing
& Research

Clinical Trials Team at PNI Center for Pituitary DisordersThe Pacific Brain Tumor Center and Pituitary Disorders Center under the direction of Daniel F. Kelly, MD, Garni Barkhoudarian, MD and Santosh Kesari, MD, PhD, as well as the John Wayne Cancer Institute are committed to improving the lives of patients with benign and malignant brain tumors, skull base tumors and pituitary tumors through clinical trials, translational research, and greater surgical anatomical understanding.

Tumor Sequencing:

In collaboration with Dr. Dave Hoon, Director of Molecular Oncology at John Wayne Cancer Institute, and Dr. Santosh Kesari, we can perform detailed genomic analysis on all brain, skull base & pituitary tumors surgically removed. We can also facilitate sending tumor tissue and blood specimens to other institutions and commercial companies for specific tumor sequencing analyses, whole genome sequencing and specific tumor markers.
