The Team

The Team

  • Establish a central database of thalamic glioma cases worldwide, aggregating data on medical history, diagnostics, genomics, treatments, and outcomes
  • Make available any discovery we make, any genetic information we uncover, about thalamic gliomas through open-source sharing
  • Accept and incorporate data from other researchers into our cloud-based registry, making it available to all partners
  • Consult with other physicians and researchers worldwide about individual cases of thalamic gliomas diagnosed in other hospitals
  • Provide a central place for patients and families confronting the diagnosis to find support and comfort from others
  • Participate in tissue banking so we can collect and share tumor samples to study. (See: The Legacy Donation Program.)
