Our research seeks to uncover more about why adult and paediatric chordoma by studying the genetic
What are the goals of this project?
The goal of this project is to describe the landscape of driver mutations and mutational processes in sporadic chordoma, including paediatric chordoma, and investigate their relationship with clinical characteristics.
What is the impact of this project?
By understanding these patterns we hope to identify new treatments.
Why the CBTN request is important to this project?
The data from the paediatric chordoma genomes provided by CBTTC will expand our small in-house cohort for a more comprehensive exploration of the genetic landscape of paediatric chordoma.
The Children's Brain Tumor Network contributed to this project by providing access to the Pediatric Brain Tumor Atlas.
