Childhood Brain Tumor Types and Programs

  • Our Childhood Brain Tumor Programs

    Glioma Program

    The pediatric Glioma Program at Dana-Farber/Boston Children's is one of the world’s largest pediatric glioma treatment programs. Ongoing research on the genetic and molecular causes of pediatric gliomas is transferred to the bedside, where some of the world’s most most experienced pediatric brain tumor specialists and pediatric subspecialists use sophisticated technology and therapies to maximize outcomes for our patients.

    Medulloblastoma Program

    Under a microscope, medulloblastomas appear similar to other brain tumors, such as pineoblastomas and primitive neuroectodermal tumors, but medulloblastomas behave differently and may require different treatment plans. The specialists in our Medulloblastoma Program have the expertise required to accurately diagnose these tumors and provide a personalized treatment plan tailored to the needs of each individual patient.

    Survivorship Program

    The Stop & Shop Family Pediatric Neuro-Oncology Outcomes Clinic at Dana-Farber/Boston Children's Cancer and Blood Disorders Center empowers pediatric survivors of brain or spinal cord tumors and their families to lead the healthiest and most fulfilling lives possible - through clinical care, education, and research.
