The Pediatric Brain Tumor Foundation is the world’s largest nonprofit funder of childhood brain tumor research. Since 1991, we have invested more than $28 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.
What We Fund
Basic, translational and clinical approaches to pediatric brain tumor research will improve the lives of children. We take this into account when setting research priorities.
Research Advisory Network
Our research grants are peer-reviewed and must meet high standards of scientific merit. We rely on the expertise of this distinguished group to help us evaluate the best funding opportunities.
Research Funding Programs
We are dedicated to making a difference for children with brain tumors of all types. To help accomplish this mandate while remaining responsive to changes in research, we’ve developed several different funding initiatives.
