NCI-CONNECT Survivorship Care Symposium

The CERN Foundation and the National Brain Tumor Society are proud participants in the Survivorship Care in Neuro-Oncology Symposium hosted by NCI-CONNECT. The symposium is an opportunity to create a forum for neuro-oncology health care providers, researchers, patient advocates, patients and care partners to learn and discuss the challenges experienced by persons living with central nervous system tumors. The symposium goals include developing survivorship care guidelines for the medical community and a research agenda focused on the gaps in CNS tumor survivorship care.

PNOC 2021 Ependymoma Webinar

The PNOC 2021 Ependymoma Informational Webinar offers patient families and pediatric brain cancer advocates to hear directly from PNOC doctors from multi-institutions about the latest findings, current state of research and clinical trials for pediatric ependymoma brain tumors. The distinguished panelists are leaders dedicated to improving the outcomes of those affected by this disease. Also joining the panel is a patient family sharing their family’s journey.

The CERN Foundation and the National Brain Tumor Society have joined forces to help people with ependymoma and advance ependymoma research toward the development of new and better treatments through the creation of the Ependymoma Fund for Research and Education. Today, the CERN Foundation is officially a designated program of the National Brain Tumor Society. Donations to the Ependymoma Fund for Research and Education will be made on the NBTS website and used to support research efforts that will benefit both ependymoma patients and research through CERN. Emphasis will be placed on CERN’s historical model of supporting work that translates basic science into clinical practice. The Fund will also address overcoming barriers to clinical trial accrual and the development of new clinical studies for ependymoma patients. Additional funds will be used to support educational efforts through print, media, and awareness events. The new collaborative Ependymoma Fund will continue CERN’s practice and tradition of involving and collaborating with other scientists, medical providers, foundations and supporters of ependymoma research.
