Research

The Pediatric Brain Tumor Foundation is the world’s largest nonprofit funder of childhood brain tumor research. Since 1991, we have invested more than $26 million in research and have played a leading role in fostering innovation in the field.

The research we fund has paved the way for more focused efforts to understand the cellular and molecular biology of childhood brain tumors. This has opened avenues for the discovery of new diagnostic and treatment approaches.
