About the DIPG / DMG Collaborative
The DIPG / DMG Collaborative is a collection of foundations with the common interest of inspiring research into the cure of Diffuse Intrinsic Pontine Glioma (DIPG) and Diffuse Midline Glioma (DMG) with the belief that through a cure for DIPG/DMG, significant advances in other cancer research will be made. Originally an organic development of the DIPG / DMG Symposium held in Cincinnati, Ohio, USA in 2011, today the DIPG / DMG Collaborative is made up of more than 20 foundations cooperatively funding between $1,000,000 to $2,000,000 in DIPG/DMG research every two years. The DIPG / DMG Symposium, which occurs every two years, is the culmination of not only the DIPG / DMG 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 / DMG Collaborative funds both clinical and translational research worldwide.
