A Kids' Brain Tumor Cure (AKTC), also known as the Pediatric Low Grade Astrocytoma Foundation, Inc., is accepting Letters of Intent (LOIs) to support researchers and provides funds that will act as a catalyst to help the researchers turn their attention to the area of pediatric low grade glioma brain tumor research. The organization's hope is that the research will lead to a better understanding of the causes of PLGA as well as the discovery of more effective treatments and a cure for the most common forms of children's brain tumors. Proposals related to basic and translational projects that can advance understanding of the underlying biology of the development and treatment of PLGA tumors will be considered. Investigators in the early years of their careers are encouraged to apply. Awards are made to the institution, not the individual. No overhead is allowed on this award.

LOI Deadline: Rolling. Guidelines: https://akidsbraintumorcure.org/medical-research-on-childhood-brain-tumors/apply-for-a-plga-sponsored-grant/
