CBTP Lab’s “Summer Sprint” Continues

Matthew Bernstein in the Weill Cornell Children's Brain Tumor Project Lab

The final two participants in the summer 2016 research program have arrived in the Children’s Brain Tumor Project (CBTP) lab. Matthew Bernstein, who lost his brother Zachary to DIPG and who currently serves as the Youth Volunteer Coordinator for his family’s Fly a Kite Foundation, will spend August helping kick-start our efforts to build a database of thalamic glioma samples. These samples, in combination with the data we are assembling through the online Thalamic Glioma Registry, will be invaluable in new, specific research efforts dedicated to these rare brain tumors.
