Funding Opportunity! Posterior Fossa A Ependymoma Translational Research Award

— Categories: CERN Research Articles   Press Release     Posted on June 23, 2023

National Brain Tumor Society (NBTS) is pleased to announce a request for proposals (RFP) for projects related to Posterior Fossa A (PFA) ependymoma, an underserved cancer that occurs primarily in young children and is generally associated with a poor outcome.

NBTS seeks proposals that would provide support for innovative translational research designed to address critical problems or barriers to progress in the field of PFA ependymoma. The proposed scope of work must include a clear translational development plan to move from the lab to the clinic. We welcome proposals that explore innovative approaches that could fundamentally change the current paradigm in PFA research. Applicants may request funding of up to $450,000 over three years.

The PFA Ependymoma Translational Research Award is supported by the CERN Foundation, a program of the National Brain Tumor Society.
