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.
Scientific Advisory Board
Our research grants are peer-reviewed and must demonstrate standards of scientific merit. We rely on the expertise of our distinguished Scientific Advisory Board to help us evaluate the best funding opportunities.
