About the CERN Foundation
The CERN Foundation has made tangible progress towards a better understanding of this difficult disease. By bringing together a broad range of experts to study this particular type of tumor, we have expanded our knowledge of ependymoma, both scientifically and clinically.
The CERN Foundation is committed to improving the care and outcome of people with ependymoma through community support and research efforts.
Established in 2006, the CERN Foundation is a 501c3 nonprofit organization dedicated to improving the lives of those affected with ependymoma.
Thanks to the efforts of an international network of collaborators, the CERN Foundation has been responsible for the publication of over 50 peer-reviewed papers in leading medical journals. This body of research has greatly advanced our understanding of ependymoma and has left a lasting legacy for future investigators to build upon. Read more about CERN’s History and accomplishments.
Today, the CERN Foundation continues to advance ependymoma research by supporting scientific fellowships, clinical trials, sponsoring professional conferences and symposia, and investigating risk factors for the disease. The CERN Foundation is currently engaged in a range of community outreach programs and support efforts designed to have a positive impact on the lives of children and adults living with ependymoma, as well as their families and caregivers.
The CERN Team
The CERN Foundation is comprised of a dedicated group of scientists and adult and pediatric neuro-oncologists working to find new treatments for ependymoma.
