By June 21, 2010December 5th, 2023Awareness, NF Conference

Those of you following our blog this month will have had a taste of the sheer enthusiasm that we felt at the 2010 Neurofibromatosis Conference in Baltimore.  Nothing short of ‘groundbreaking’ describes the progress being made today to understand and find effective treatments  NF1, NF2 and schwannomatosis  – and the Children’s Tumor Foundation is front and center in driving this through our research grant programs.  Many of the 300+ researchers and clinicians attending talked about how important the Children’s Tumor Foundation had been in funding their research and getting new ideas ‘jump started’.

To hear about progress in NF research and CTF’s impact on this visit to watch these short videos from the NF Conference featuring such luminaries as Dr. Bruce Korf, Dr. Sue Huson, Dr. Vic Riccardi and Dr. Jaishri Blakeley. Also included is an exciting announcement from CTF Executive Director Dr. George Orfanakos on a funding partnership between the Children’s Tumor Foundation and the Texas Neurofibromatosis Foundation.
