The Musella Foundation for Brain Tumor Research & Information Inc, announces the awarding of a $5,000 grant to Dr. Resnick of the Children`s Hospital of Philadelphia for the project: Genomic Analysis of DIPG.

Al's Comment:

DIPG is a type of pediatric brain tumor that is among the most devastating pediatric diseases.   There hasn't been enough research on this type because they are so rare. A genetic analysis may open the door for finding existing treatments that might work against this tumor type.  This particular project is just a small part of a huge effort to create a new informatics platform for the sharing, analysis and storage of raw and analyzed data on pediatric brain tumors  in an open access environment. The results of this project will be shared with researchers worldwide with the goal of accelerating pediatric brain tumor research.
