(St. Joseph's Hospital and Medical Center) Barrow Neurological Institute has initiated a $50 million effort, supported by the single largest research grant in the history of brain tumor research, to seek a cure for the deadliest form of brain cancer. Funding from The Ben and Catherine Ivy Foundation will be used to dramatically accelerate drug discovery and clinical testing for glioblastoma in the...
Scientists at Washington University in St. Louis say they have developed a technique that allows them to detect brain tumor biomarkers through a simple blood test. Hong Chen, Ph.D., a biomedical engineer, and Eric C. Leuthardt, M.D., a neurosurgeon, led a team whose proof-of-concept method permits biomarkers from a brain tumor to pass through the tough blood-brain barrier into a patient&...

One of the biggest challenges facing surgeons carrying out the removal of a brain tumor is working out how much of it they can remove without damaging the patient's life afterwards.
Brain tumors are among the most aggressive and deadly cancers and a leading cause of cancer-related death in children and young adults. Glioblastoma is a particularly aggressive form of brain tumor that is characterized by a very rapid tumor growth of glia cells – the most abundant cell types in th...
(Children's Tumor Foundation ) The Children's Tumor Foundation (CTF), the largest non-governmental funder of neurofibromatosis (NF) research, and PLOS ONE, a leading peer-reviewed scientific journal, are pleased to announce the successful completion of the first funding cycle of the Drug Discovery Initiative Registered Report (DDIRR) 2017 Awards, a funder-publisher partnership integrating the Regi...
(Washington University in St. Louis) Taking a biopsy of a brain tumor is a complicated and invasive surgical process, but a team of researchers at Washington University in St. Louis is developing a way that allows them to detect tumor biomarkers through a simple blood test.

Scientists have discovered that cancerous cells in an aggressive type of childhood brain tumor work together to infiltrate the brain, and this finding could ultimately lead to much needed new treatments, according to a new study published in Nature Medicine today (Monday).
Surgery to remove a brain tumor took much of the patient's vision. But the remaining part of his brain has adjusted.
The death today of Sen. John McCain (R-Ariz.) sheds a new light on glioblastoma, a form of brain cancer that the American Brain Tumor Association estimated would be diagnosed in nearly 13,000 people this year.
(Brain & Behavior Research Foundation) The Brain & Behavior Research Foundation announced the awarding of its Young Investigator Grants to 200 of the world's most promising young scientists. The grants, awarded annually, support the work of early-career scientists with innovative ideas for groundbreaking neurobiological research seeking to identify causes, improve treatments and develop prevention...
(National Science Foundation) Categorization, or the recognition that individual objects share similarities and can be grouped together, is fundamental to how we make sense of the world. Previous research has revealed how the brain categorizes images. Now, researchers funded by the National Science Foundation have discovered that the brain categorizes sounds in much the same way.
TUESDAY, Aug. 21, 2018 -- Radiation therapy for the most common childhood brain tumor can cause memory problems, new research suggests. Specifically, it can leave young survivors struggling to create memories of recent personal events, the small...
(St. Jude Children's Research Hospital) Researchers have created the first genetic screening guidelines for medulloblastoma patients after identifying gene variations that make carriers susceptible to develop the brain tumor and possibly other cancers.
Dr. Patricia Steeg discusses the role of the blood-tumor barrier in both development and treatment of brain metastases.
(Society for Neuroscience) Young people who received radiation therapy for the most common pediatric brain tumor struggle to create new memories about specific events, according to a study of children and adolescents published in JNeurosci. Their ability to recall events prior to treatment, however, remains intact.
A type of highly malignant brain tumor contains a large number of cells involved in the formation of new blood vessels, helping it proliferate and spread.
(The Washington Post) – It was a solution no parent wants to hear: To get rid of a brain tumor and stop their young son’s seizures, surgeons would need to cut out one-sixth of his brain. But for Tanner Collins, … Read More
In animal models, disease recapitulation is the guiding principle. Scientists spend considerable time and effort trying to reproduce—as closely as possible—the exact molecular and physiological conditions associated with various diseases states. To that end, a new study from investigators at the Seve Ballesteros Foundation-CNIO Brain Tumor Group at the Spanish National Cancer Research Centre (...
(CeMM Research Center for Molecular Medicine of the Austrian Academy of Sciences) Glioblastoma is a brain cancer with devastating prognosis. It is caused by numerous genetic defects, which make it difficult to treat. A new study by scientists from CeMM, MedUni Vienna and the Austrian Brain Tumor Registry network demonstrates how epigenetic analysis of tumor samples collected in routine clinical pr...
