About this organization








Neurofibromatosis (NF) causes tumors to grow on nerves throughout the body, and affects 1 in every 3,000 people of every population. Our mission: Drive research, expand knowledge, and advance care for the NF community. Our vision: End NF.


Research - The Children's Tumor Foundation supports NF research through a range of funding mechanisms. Our investments in research are three-fold: 1) to attract talented investigators to NF research; 2) to support innovative research; and 3) to foster collaborative efforts to find treatments and cures for neurofibromatosis. The foundation has been at the forefront of key advances in NF research including funding the laboratories that discovered the NF1 and NF2 genes, supporting groundbreaking clinical trials, and establishing the first nationwide NF clinic network and NF patient registry. The foundation sponsors an annual scientific conference which brings researchers together to discuss the latest scientific developments related to NF. Additionally, our programs are designed to integrate with and support larger federally funded projects through the Congressionally Directed Medical Research Program (CDMRP) and NIH.
