Glioblastoma multiforme (“glioblastoma”) is the most common and deadly form of brain cancer globally. It aggressively invades brain tissue and causes rapid onset of neurological symptoms. This invasion includes fostering a highly vascularized microenvironment and intricate interactions between tumor and non-tumor cells within the brain which promotes its growth and survival despite current treatments.
