Analysis of Chromatin Pathways as Regulators of High Grade Glioma Gene Expression Patterns
Comprehensive research into high grade gliomas is necessary to find new effective therapies. Using the Pediatric Brain Tumor Atlas, researchers will identify patterns in gene expression that could pave the way for the development of new therapeutics.
Investigating the Tumorigenesis Mechanisms and Vulnerabilities of Pediatric High-grade Gliomas with H3G34R/V
Pediatric high-grade gliomas (pHGGs) is a deadly disease and research is needed to aid in the development of new therapies. Researchers will use preclinical models provided by the Children’s Brain Tumor Network in an effort to identify possible targets for the treatment of pHGGs.
