Dr. Hervey-Jumper is a neurosurgeon scientist specializing in adult brain tumors including low and high grade gliomas, meningiomas, and neurocutaneous syndromes (e.g., Neurofibromatosis, von Hippel Lindau, Tuberous Sclerosis). Dr Hervey-Jumper's work on gliomas spans from the bench to the operating room. He has published numerous scientific articles as well as book chapters on brain tumors. He research efforts include studies to examine the role of non-coding RNA on tumor invasion, explore regional heterogeneity of therapeutic targets in gliomas, and prevent the malignant transformation of low grade tumors. These laboratory efforts synergies with Dr Hervey-Jumper's neurosurgical care of brain tumor patients which uses intra-operative brain mapping to identify functional areas and maximize extent of tumor resection.
Dr Hervey-Jumper is a graduate of Ohio State University college of medicine where he earned a Doctorate of Medicine and was elected to the Alpha Omega Alpha Medical Honors Society, Phi Kappa Phi, and the Landacre research honors society. He completed a surgical internship and neurosurgical residency at the University of Michigan Medical Center in Ann Arbor, MI. He subsequently moved to San Francisco, CA where, under the direction of Michel Berger, MD of University of California San Francisco, he gained additional training in Neuro-Oncology with a focus on brain mapping and tumors in functional areas.
Dr Hervey-Jumper is a member of numerous professional societies including Society for Neuro-Oncology (SNO), American Association for Cancer Research (AACR), American Association of Neurological Surgeons (AANS), Congress of Neurological Surgeons (CNS), and AANS and CNS Joint section for tumors. He lives in Ann Arbor with his wife and two daughters.
