The NCI sponsors and funds the consortium, a multidisciplinary cooperative research organization devoted to the study of correlative tumor biology and new therapies for children with primary central nervous system tumors.

Members of the consortium, established in 1999, share their expertise to develop and conduct novel clinical trials designed to improve treatment of pediatric brain tumors.

New members are chosen through a competitive process based on several characteristics, including clinical trial infrastructure and expertise in basic and translational science.
