Research

The Childhood Brain Tumor Foundation (CBTF) has funded state-of-the-art research and supported conferences for pediatric brain tumors over the past 19 years. Grant Applications submitted during our open Grant Application period are are reviewed thoroughly by our dedicated team of renown scientific advisors. CBTF selects only the highest quality research for pediatric brain tumors.

  • Our process is based on National Institutes of Health review standards, led by Dr. Roger J. Packer, founding advisor and chairman of the advisory.
  • Advisors are assigned applications to ensure there are no conflicts of interest.
  • Our dedicated advisors voluntarily review, score, and summarize each application.
  • The Advisors hold a teleconference call to discuss the applications.
  • They make recommendations to CBTF after the full review.
  • The CBTF Board discusses the recommendations and overall review scores/summaries and collective comments before voting on which applications will be selected for funding.

Each year, we receive many outstanding applications, but cannot fund all. It is through the support of private and public donations that CBTF is able to fund grant programs.

With your support, together, we will strive to find a cure for childhood brain tumors.

The Grant Application period is open for 2014. Please visit the 2014 CBTF Research Grant application page.
