National Brain Tumor Society Collaborates with AANS/CNS to Fund Translational Brain Tumor Research
National Brain Tumor Society is committed to supporting brain tumor physicians and research that directs therapies to our patients. In pursuit of that goal, the American Association of Neurological Surgeons/Congress of Neurological Surgeons (AANS/CNS) Section on Tumors collaborated with us to fund a translational research grant. This $50,000 award was given to a faculty/attending neurosurgeon with the best proposal for translational research in the area of brain tumor investigation and treatment.
