The PBTF sponsors scientific meetings where the latest developments are discussed and new collaborative research efforts are often forged to advance the search for the cause of and cure for childhood brain tumors. These have included:

In addition, the PBTF provides funding to the Central Brain Tumor Registry of the United States, which works with population-based registries to track all primary brain and central nervous system tumors diagnosed in the United States. The data are published in an annual statistical report.
