Pediatric Brain Tumor Research :: Nationwide Children's Hospital

Brain Tumor Research

Brain tumors are the deadliest form of childhood cancer.  Although survival rates for some pediatric brain tumors have increased over the past few decades, current treatment options including radiation and chemotherapy are often quite toxic, causing children to often suffer from long-term side effects.

Investigators at Nationwide Children’s Hospital are focused on developing treatment strategies for children with brain tumors that not only treat disease, but ensure improved quality of life.
