We aim to screen the established CBTN database of pediatric brain tumor tissue to identify a list of proteins. We then aim to use an established protocol to compare this list to normal tissue expression lists, to potentially compile a list of proteins expressed in pediatric brain tumors.
The Children's Brain Tumor Network contributed to this project by providing access to the Pediatric Brain Tumor Atlas.

High-grade glioma/astrocytoma (WHO grade III/IV)
High-grade Gliomas (HGG) in children nearly always result in a dismal prognosis. Although novel therapeutic approaches are currently in development, preclinical testing has been limited, due to a lack of pediatric specific HGG preclinical models. These models are needed to help test the effective
