Covid19 update: gliomatosis cerebri research grant has been extended to October 15th

Covid 19

As a result of COVID-19 around the world we have decided to postpone applications’ deadline until October 15, 2020.

We will be closely following the evolution of these circumstances, modifying the aforementioned date if necessary to ensure that all applicants have equal opportunities.

As we explained in our previous publication, four associations in France, the United States and Spain, created by parents whose children died of gliomatosis cerebri, have come together to finance the first research project to be carried out internationally between centers of different countries about this rare type of childhood brain cancer.

The grant is published on this website of the III Congress for the Researchof Gliomatosis Cerebri, held in Barcelona last September with the assistance of researchers and families. This initiative emerged from this event.

This first international call for research for specific multi-institutional projects on gliomatosis cerebri, which amounts to 300,000 euros, will be financed between the Spanish association Izas, la princesa guisante (from which the proposal to carry out this grant arose), the French Franck, a rayon de soleil and Mathys, a rayon de soleil, and the American AYJ Fund. The grant remains open to other possible international collaborations.
