Pediatric Low-Grade Gliomas Research Study Published

Making Headway funds a variety of research studies to help identify better treatments and a cure for pediatric brain or spinal cord tumors. Several years ago, Making Headway helped fund a project led by Dr. Uri Tabori, at the Hospital for Sick Children in Toronto. This study seeks to understand the implications of a specific gene, BRAF V600E, in Pediatric Low-Grade Gliomas.  Although the paper is quite technical, it showcases both the tremendous complexity of understanding pediatric brain tumors and the significant advancements that researchers are making.  Making Headway is proud to help move this science forward by funding innovative and practical research projects.  You can download a copy of the report at http://makingheadway.org/published.  You can support future projects, by donating to Making Headway.
