The SBTF welcomes our newest Board member Robert “Craig” Castellino, MD. A physician-scientist, Craig obtained both his undergraduate and medical degrees from Duke University. He completed his internship and residency training in Pediatrics at Harvard Medical School and the Massachusetts General Hospital in Boston, MA, and his fellowship in Pediatric Hematology/Oncology at Texas Children’s Cancer Center/Baylor College of Medicine in Houston, TX. Craig has been on the faculty at Emory University since 2007 where he is currently an Assistant Professor in the Department of Pediatrics. Craig’s passion is not only treating children diagnosed with a brain tumor, but furthering our understanding of what causes aggressive subtypes of brain tumors and using that knowledge to develop novel, less-toxic treatments for pediatric brain tumors. Craig is a member of various National and International Committees, as well as a recipient of numerous research grant awards, including grants from SBTF, the National Institutes of Health (NIH), and the Department of Defense (DoD). Craig is excited about the opportunity to use his knowledge and experience in the field of neuro-oncology on the Board of Directors of the SBTF to help brain tumor patients and expand the reach and mission of the SBTF.
