Description:

Many brain tumors are highly invasive and therefore extremely difficult to
treat. Cells from the primary tumor often infiltrate into surrounding brain
tissues, so that removal of the main tumor mass is not sufficient to prevent
recurrence. The goal of this Program Announcement with set-aside funds (PAS)
is to promote studies that: (1) identify the properties of brain tumor cells
that cause them to migrate; (2) determine how interaction of tumor cells with
normal brain elements affects migration; and (3) translate understanding of
these parameters into interventions that target invading tumor cells.
Interdisciplinary studies that apply new concepts and methodologies from
developmental neuroscience, genomics, precursor cell biology and other
related fields are particularly encouraged.
