Research Statement

Craig Daniels is a PhD trained scientist, who currently supports research that uses tools from human genetics/genomics and mouse models to further our understanding of the biology of pediatric brain tumors—medulloblastoma and ependymoma.

He has knowledge of techniques from multiple disciplines including cell biology, biochemistry, molecular biology, and cancer biology, which allow a better understanding of biological mechanisms and health issues. He also has extensive experience in writing and editing successful grant and fellowship/scholarship applications, scientific manuscripts, book chapters, editorials, and progress reports. 

He has been a journal reviewer (ad hoc) for Environmental Microbiology, Microbial Biotechnology and the Journal of Bacteriology.

His overarching goal is to help support the research aimed at generating novel therapies to effectively treat patients suffering from devastating malignancies.
