This program has a broad national and international referral base for novel experimental therapies for children with CNS tumors. Furthermore, Seattle Children’s Hospital/Ben Towne Center for Childhood Cancer Research is an international leader in early phase biologically driven pharma and immunotherapy trials for children with high-risk CNS tumors. The fellowship will provide a broad-range multidisciplinary experience in the management of children and adolescents with CNS tumors and exposure to current best active therapies as well as early phase and novel trial therapies.
