Neuro-oncology Research

Brain and spinal cord tumors are the most common solid tumors in children. There are more than 100 different types, and they exhibit an enormous amount of genetic heterogeneity and differ in clinical presentation. Researchers at the Center for Childhood Cancer Research are using state-of-the-art genomic, immunotherapeutic and targeted molecular approaches to develop new therapies and optimize existing therapies to treat pediatric brain and spinal cord tumors.
