The research proposed for funding must focus on pediatric brain tumor(s). Projects may be discovery-oriented, translational or epidemiological in nature. Research proposals of interest to the PBTF will likely generate findings instrumental to advancing the field and in one or more of the following clinical areas:

– Etiology

– Diagnosis and/or prognosis

– Current standard of care

– Treatment options

– Treatment planning (matching drugs to molecularly defined tumor subtypes)

– Evaluating response to treatment

– Early detection of recurrent tumor/monitoring disease status

– Health-related quality of life
