Since 1976, the ABTA has awarded more than $30 million in research grants to scientists from around the world. The ABTA’s Research Program supports both established and new scientists in discovering more about the causes, effects, diagnosis, and treatment of brain tumors. Research funded by the ABTA has informed and influenced the brain tumor field in a variety of areas, including:
Each research grant helps to further support our mission of advancing the understanding and treatment of brain tumors.
The AARN is a network of current and previous ABTA-funded investigators. Members participate in an annual meeting to network, share research findings, and learn leadership and management skills that will help them to continue to advance the brain tumor research field.
Funding for early career scientists who have the potential to change our understanding of brain tumor causes, effects, diagnosis, and treatment.
A partnership among private philanthropic and advocacy organizations to fund high-value projects.
A one-week course, partially sponsored by the ABTA, that emphasizes the molecular mechanisms involved in the growth and development of brain tumors.
With support from the ABTA, the Central Brain Tumor Registry of the United States (CBTRUS) collects and distributes data on the incidence and prevalence of brain tumors.
This ABTA-funded study aims to discover the causes of LGG as well as effects of the tumor and its treatment on the daily lives of those affected.
