Medulloblastoma Collaborative

The Medulloblastoma Collaborative formed due to connections made at the CHRI Pediatric Cancer Research Symposium.

Vision:

To improve the life of children with high-risk medulloblastomas

Mission:

To capitalize on complementary biomedical expertise within CHRI and the greater University of Nebraska campuses to collaboratively advance our understanding of high-risk medulloblastoma pathophysiology and therapeutics

Goals:

  1. To allow for free exchange of ideas that may result in better quality research
  2. To provide a panel of MB experts who may provide peer review for future projects, manuscripts and grants
  3. To eventually procure multi-PI national funding
