EBCI Welcomes Clinical Research Coordinator/Patient Navigator
The End Brain Cancer Initiative (EBCI) is thrilled to welcome Shreya S. Prakash to our team. "My role as Clinical Research Coordinator/ Patient Navigator involves helping patients understand EBCI's studies and assessing their eligibility. I also assist them in finding appropriate clinical trials and provide quick access to GBM-related information, including treatments, medical devices, drugs, and specialists," said Shreya. "With the vast research, trials, and medical advancements in GBM, accessing and understanding all of it is tough for patients and families. EBCI steps in to provide essential information, which is crucial as it can significantly impact and save patients' lives."
