CBTTC Collection Protocol
The Children Brain Tumor Tissue Consortium (CBTTC) is a collaborative multi-institutional cooperative research program dedicated to the study of childhood brain tumors. The ultimate goal of the CBTTC is to improve outcomes for children with brain tumors by supporting research on new prognostic biomarkers and therapies. In order to achieve this, the consortium links high quality tumor specimens with clinical and genomic data in a de-identified manner. This information is then available to be requested by investigators worldwide. The results of the research is then filtered back into the project, sharing results and increasing collaboration to ultimately achieve better outcomes.
