Announcing a New Award: Request for Data in NF Initiative

The Children’s Tumor Foundation (CTF) and the Neurofibromatosis Therapeutic Acceleration Program are excited to announce a new collaborative initiative: Opening the Data Drawers: Request for Data in Neurofibromatosis Initiative. We recognize that many people may be restricted in performing their regular research activities during the policy changes required for the emergent response to COVID-19. We also recognize the ever increasing value of well curated datasets that support a broad range of new research. This opportunity provides investigators support and resources for curating and sharing previously unpublished (but quality assured) datasets to spur new secondary research. Areas of particular interest are NF1: Plexiform, and Cutaneous Neurofibroma, NF2, and Schwannomatosis. We also encourage submission of MPNST, or other datasets pertinent to all area of NF research.
