Samy Y. Lamouille, Ph.D.
Assistant Professor, Basic Science Education, Virginia Tech Carilion School of Medicine
Research Assistant Professor, Virginia Tech Carilion Research Institute
Dr. Samy Lamouille works with Dr. Robert Gourdie and Dr. Zhi Sheng in studying the tumors that develop in the brain's connective tissue. Called glioblastomas, these tumors are intricately connected to the brain's blood vessels. They are usually malignant and frequently fatal, since few targeted treatments exist.
