Dr. Das is married to Pavani Reddy Das, a specialist in the Division of Infectious Diseases and Director of the Antibiotic Stewardship Committee at North York General Hospital.
clinical and research interests are focused on improving of our clinical and biological understanding of primary cancers of the brain.
is particularly interested in the clinical management of malignant gliomas.
research focuses on the nexus of neural stem cell and cancer biology, with the hope that advancing our understanding of the biology of malignant gliomas will allow the identification of novel therapies for this disease.
