Finding less toxic and more effective treatments for children battling the most common forms of brain tumors will be possible through the collaboration of all interested parties. Most importantly, with the new-found spirit of collaboration between all medical disciplines as well as lay person resources (parent, families, caregivers, etc.) makes the possibility of finding these new treatments and a cure even more realistic. At the 2008 ISPNO meeting, more than 100 families with children suffering from brain tumors gathered to ask questions directed at an interdisciplinary panel of pediatric brain tumor physicians. In this short video, Dr. Roger Packer and Dr. Mark Kieran share with the audience some of their insights into potential for an accelerated pace of research based on the new, collaborative focus, of medical experts around the world.
