Former Chair of Neuropathology at Armed Forces Institute of Pathology, Washington, DC; Professor of Neurology at Uniformed Services University of the Health Sciences; currently, neuropathology consultant at the University Hospital of Zurich, Switzerland.
The overarching theme of her research involves identifying molecular targets, determining mechanisms of action, deciphering signaling pathways, and preclinical testing of developmental therapeutics in mouse models of breast cancer brain metastases.
For five years, Dr. Gril has focused her research on the investigation of the molecular underpinnings of the blood-tumor barrier permeability, in order to develop strategies to improve drug uptake. She received several awards from different organizations such as AACR and ASCO and received the NCI Director’s Intramural Innovation Award in 2012.
