Model development has been part of the focus of researchers in the National Brain Tumor Society’s Defeat GBM Research Collaborative. As recorded in the latest progress report from this program, the Defeat GBM team has already collaborated on the creation of more than 70 new model systems that mimic human GBM tumors with improved accuracy. These models have been deployed across the Defeat GBM teams to identify and validate a…
