Seven Bridges Joins CBTTC in International Genomic Cancer Research Effort
Seven Bridges said on Tuesday that it has joined an international alliance that aims to link genomic cancer datasets from The Gabriella Miller Kids First Data Resource Center (Kids First DRC), Zero Childhood Cancer (Zero), the Children’s Brain Tumor Tissue Consortium (CBTTC). According to Seven Bridges, the partners aim to build a computation infrastructure that will harmonize data from Zero, an Australian initiative using genomics to personalize treatments for pediatric cancers, with the genomic datasets of CBTTC and Kids First DRC. The effort is expected to help improve researchers’ understanding of rare pediatric brain cancer subtypes.
Strength in Numbers: How Global Innovation, Collaboration, and Dedication are Bringing Us Closer to a Cure for Every Child
Like so many of us during the month of September, I’ve come to regard Childhood Cancer Awareness Month as a time to take stock and reflect -- on the bravery and strength of the children and families I’ve encountered in my clinical practice, and on the progress still to be made in the struggle against childhood brain cancer.
CBTN Expands Our Mission & Vision as the Children's Brain Tumor Network
As we continue onward, the CBTTC has officially transitioned to a new phase in our efforts on behalf of childhood brain tumor patients everywhere. Now, as the Children’s Brain Tumor Network (CBTN) we will further grow our partnerships and research efforts to CURE pediatric brain tumors through innovation, resource sharing, a commitment to global inclusion, and, most critically, through the translation of data into new clinical trials and increased clinical impact.
