Overview

Dr. Kaur is a board-certified child neurologist and a pediatric neuro-oncologist. Her interests include Neurofibromatosis related tumors, cancer related neurotoxicity, and tumor targeted therapy for low grade gliomas. She chose the field of neuro-oncology as she would like to dedicate her career to help children have the best chance for a future while minimizing the toxicities and residual deficits.

She is especially interested in Neurofibromatosis, a genetic disorder that affects 1 out of 3, 000 children and adults. Patients with this genetic disorder can develop brain, spinal cord, and nerve tumors. As a neuro-oncologist, her aim is to provide highest quality of care and access to the recent advances in the field.

Dr. Kaur remains committed to the clinical and pre-clinical research. She has been involved in the clinical trials as a site principal investigator and co-investigator. She mentors’ residents, fellows, and medical students interested in the field of child neurology and neuro-oncology.
