TACL is comprised of a group of children’s hospitals and universities that work closely together to rapidly develop and carry out clinical trials. TACL develops clinical trials of new therapies and novel therapy combinations in recurrent childhood leukemia and lymphoma. PNOC is a network of 15 children’s hospitals that conduct clinical trials of new therapies for children with brain tumors. Our goal is to improve patient outcomes by turning the latest findings in cancer biology into  treatments.
