Gutmann Laboratory Receives A Grant From Ian’s Friends Foundation

The Gutmann laboratory recently was awarded a grant from Ian’s Friends Foundation (IFF) to develop better models of human NF1 low-grade brain tumors (gliomas). In their proposal, this team will be investigating what cells and signals allow human pediatric gliomas to grow in the mouse brain, eliminating a major barrier to the development and deployment of preclinical models for these childhood brain tumors.

IFF partners with and supports research laboratories at leading hospitals and universities around the country focused on the development of new therapeutic methodologies and treatments for pediatric brain tumors. In addition, this organization also works to increase public awareness to the severity of pediatric brain tumors.
