Research

Partnerships

The Children's Brain Tumor Network partners with other organizations and initiatives to empower other research efforts to use the CBTN's data, specimens and expertise. These partnerships allow external groups to take advantage off the CBTN's rich collection of resources while sharing their data to help improve future research projects around the world.

If your organization or effort is interested in partnering with the CBTN, email us at operations@cbtn.org

  • PNOC Logo-01.png

    Pacific Pediatric Neuro-Oncology Consortium

    The Pacific Pediatric Neuro-Oncology Consortium (PNOC) is an international consortium with study sites within the United States, Canada, Europe and Australia. PNOC is dedicated to bringing new therapies to children and young adults with brain tumors - with the goal to improve outcomes by translating the latest findings in brain tumor biology into better treatments for children.

    NF2 Biosolutions

    Neurofibromatosis 2 (NF2) is a rare genetic disorder that is primarily characterized by noncancerous (benign) tumors of the nerves that transmit balance and sound impulses from the inner ears to the brain (bilateral acoustic neuromas/vestibular schwannomas). NF Biosolutions is partnering with CBTN on biobanking and research efforts to discover the underlying causes and identification of potential treatments through molecular analysis.

    ETMR One Registry

    The ETMR One Registry has partnered with The Children’s Brain Tumor Network (CBTN) for the collection and processing of high-quality ETMR biospecimens and the associated genomic analysis of these tumor samples. Together, we aim to develop ETMR cell lines and transplantable tumor models which will be made available to dedicated researchers from around the globe.

    Chordoma Foundation Biobank

    The Chordoma Foundation Biobank initiative will share biospecimens, clinical and genomic data via the expertise and tools created by the CBTN's Operations Center at CHOP to accelerate chordoma biospecimen based research. CBTN Operations will serve as not only the central biospecimen repository but also the phenotypic and genomic data management center for the Chordoma Foundation.
