Professional Summary

Dr. Matthew Garrett is a neurosurgeon specializing in primary brain tumors (those that originate in the brain such as glioma/glioblastoma) and metastatic brain tumors (those that begin somewhere else in the body and spread to the brain). He is an expert on the surgical removal of these tumors as well as radiation therapy. While removing these tumors and treating with radiation can extend survival, the majority of brain tumors have no definitive cure. For this reason, Dr. Garrett is heavily invested in bringing new clinical trials and investigational therapies that are not available anywhere else.
Dr. Garrett runs a research lab that focuses on discovering a cure of brain tumors. After surgical removal, Dr. Garrett takes the tumor tissue, grows the cells in flasks and tests novel drugs to look for new treatments. His research has received funding from both the NIH and private donor organizations. Dr. Garrett has received the top tumor research awards from both neurosurgical societies (Mahaley award AANS, Preuss award CNS).
