Collaborative Discovery Supports Next Wave of Pediatric Brain Tumor Innovation

Editor’s Note: Childhood brain tumors remain some of the most difficult to treat cancers, especially because of current therapies’ long-term side effects for the survivors. In honor of Brain Tumor Awareness Month, Adam Resnick, PhD, director of the Center for Data-Driven Discovery in Biomedicine (D3b) at Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia, is our guest blogger. He brings us up to date on how the CHOP-led consortia, working with patients, families, and partnering institutions, has witnessed first-in-kind initiatives and innovative clinical trials aimed at personalized, precision-based approaches for brain tumors that are redefining the scientific landscape of research and therapeutic translation.
