The CCBCF is proud to be a foundational partner of the DIPG Collaborative.
The DIPG Collaborative is a collection of foundations with the common interest of inspiring research into the cure of Diffuse Intrinsic Pontine Glioma (DIPG) with the belief that through a cure for DIPG, significant advances in other cancer research will be made. Originally an organic development of the DIPG Symposium held in Cincinnati, Ohio, USA in 2011, today the DIPG Collaborative is made up of more than 20 foundations cooperatively funding between $1,000,000 to $2,000,000 in DIPG research every two years. The DIPG Symposium, which occurs every two years, is the culmination of not only the DIPG Collaborative’s funding cycle, but also features unique perspectives on research from experts around the globe.
With a goal of seeking the balance of research transparency, institutional collaboration and the elimination of duplication, the DIPG Collaborative funds both clinical and translational research worldwide.
