The Role of Genetic Factors in Ependymoma and Medulloblastoma Susceptibility
Approved Research ID: 59707
Approval date: July 9th 2020
Brain tumors are the most common solid tumors in children. They are also a leading cause of cancer deaths in children. Medulloblastoma and ependymoma are two histological types of brain tumors.
Our proposed studies will include data or samples from several large institutions and/or consortia. Adding the available genetic data at UK Biobank to the available data from other sources, will provide the sample size which is needed to perform the proposed studies.
