Schwannoma is a rare type of tumor that forms in the nervous system. Schwannoma grows from cells called Schwann cells. Schwann cells protect and support the nerve cells of the nervous system. Schwannoma tumors are often benign, which means they are not cancer. But, in rare cases, they can become cancer.

Elucidating the Somatic Epigenetic Landscape of Pediatric Meningioma and Schwannoma
Pediatric tumors have unique properties compared to adult tumors, requiring different treatment strategies for the same tumor type. Using samples provided by the Children’s Brain Tumor Network, researchers will carry out comprehensive comparisons of pediatric meningioma and schwannoma to map these critical areas to develop novel treatments.
