Brain Tumor Research Program
Investigators in the Brain Tumor Center perform research to improve care of children with brain and spinal cord tumors, develop new treatments, and broaden the knowledge about the biology of brain and spinal cord tumors. Some of the clinical trials focus on patients with brain and spinal cord tumors, at diagnosis and at the time of recurrence. Others ranging from Phase I to Phase III trials investigate treatments of all pediatric central nervous system diagnoses. Partnerships with other organizations also offer opportunities for patients to participate in clinical trials. Basic and translational research continues to expand the understanding of the biology of brain and spinal cord tumors, advance the field of neuro-oncology, and build the foundation for treatment-related advancements in the future.
