Charles Eberhart

Dr. Eberhart, Associate Professor of Pathology, Ophthalmology and Oncology, is a highly regarded physician-scientist and neuropathologist neuropathologist involved in both brain tumor diagnosis and medical research. His research group is focused on discovering innovative therapies for brain and eye tumors by seeking to understand how molecular pathways that help the fetal nervous system grow are turned on in cancer. Dr. Eberhart has over 70 publications, most of which focus on the pathology and genetics of childhood brain tumors. He is a member of the Editorial Board of the Journal of Neuropathology and Experimental Neurology, and of Neuro-Oncology.

Dr. Rodriguez's clinical and research interests focus on the identification of diagnostic, prognostic, and therapeutic biomarkers in primary brain tumors. His current research activities aim to characterize molecular changes and signaling pathway alterations associated with the development of pediatric gliomas, as well as phenotypic characterization of murine models of CNS neoplasia. As part of a multidisciplinary effort, one of his main goals is to integrate classic histopathologic analyses with current ancillary and molecular data obtained through immunohistochemistry, microarray profiling, molecular cytogenetics, and genomic sequencing.
