Medulloblastoma studies presented at PBTF Conference

Sachiko and Charles were excited to have presented our work, "Bortezomib inhibits Progression in Medulloblastoma" at the Pediatric Neuro-Oncology Basic & Translational Research Conference in Ashville, NC. This conference was jointly sponsored by the Pediatric Brain Tumor Foundation and the Society of NeuroOncology. We are grateful for this opportunity to have presented our work (our medulloblastoma model development was originally developed with a grant from the PBTF), and to exchange ideas with the other thought leaders in the field of childhood brain tumor research.
