Collaborative Research Grants

To further the impact of important brain tumour research, Brain Tumour Foundation of Canada works with other organizations on supporting and advancing brain tumour research.

The Developmental Neurobiology collaboration with the National Brain Tumour Society is creating impact with three exciting research projects focused on pediatric brain tumours. Learn about all three projects here.

A second partnership that accelerates research into brain tumours is with the Brain Tumor Funders' Collaborative.  This group brings together seven other non-profit, philanthropic and advocacy organizations from the United States. Learn more about the variety of projects that have been funded by this group here. Watch this page for updates on the progress of the collaborative's research funded in 2010.
