Spatial Evolution and Somatic Mutations Spectrum of Gliomatosis Cerebri
The development of treatment for Gliomatosis cerebri and other high grade gliomas relies on a comprehensive understanding of each tumor type. Using the Pediatric Brain Tumor Atlas alongside other open access datasets, researchers will map and analyze how tumors change over time, across locations, and the specific proteins created in Gliomatosis cerebri.
Relationships Between Genomic, Imaging, and Histopathologic Characteristics in Pediatric Brain Tumors
Genomic data, tumor imagery, and text-based data are all important in the diagnosis and treatment of cancers. Through computational comparisons of these data types made available through the Pediatric Brain Tumor Atlas, researchers seek to improve the accuracy of cancer diagnostics.
All Brain Tumor Types
High-grade Gliomas (HGG) or astrocytomas 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
