Johns Hopkins Medicine, established in 1995 to unite Hopkins biomedical research, clinical teaching and business enterprises, brings together The Johns Hopkins University School of Medicine and its faculty with the facilities and programs of The Johns Hopkins Health System. The Health System, which has its origins in the founding of The Johns Hopkins Hospital, now comprises three hospitals as well as other elements of an integrated system, from a community physicians group to home care. The components of Johns Hopkins Medicine consistently are named at the top of national rankings for best hospital and best school of medicine, and its faculty consistently wins the largest share of NIH research funds. Results of this research continue to advance efforts to diagnose, treat and prevent many diseases. For more information, please visit www.hopkinsmedicine.org.

Additional Information

Dr. Lim's primary research interest involves immune-based therapies against brain tumors. His research focuses on understanding the mechanisms of immune evasion by primary brain tumors with the goal of translation to novel therapies against gliomas. Dr. Lim also performs clinical research. He publishes extensively in radiosurgery and also has interests in brain tumor clinical trials for which he works closely with the neuro-oncologists in a team approach.
