The Pediatric Brain Tumor Foundation is the world’s largest non-governmental funder of childhood brain tumor research. Since 1991, we have invested more than $24 million in research and 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

We believe that outcomes for children with brain tumors will improve more quickly when researchers share the results of their work with each other in real time and work collaboratively.

Online Survey for Parents

Parents of children diagnosed with a brain tumor are invited to participate in an online survey. The study, conducted by BC Children’s Hospital, the Collaboration for Outcomes Research and Evaluation (CORE), University of British Columbia (UBC), the Hospital for Sick Children and the University of Toronto, aims to better understand parents’ preferences regarding approach to treatment.
