Description of intervention(s) / exposure
This is a tumour biology study whereby tumour and constitutional tissue samples from 12 patients from participating sites in Australia with diffuse pontine glioma (DIPG) and other types of brainstem gliomas will be collected at autopsy, culture the DIPG cells in vivo and perform a screen of 10,000 small molecules that specifically inhibit diffuse pontine glioma propagation and identify these molecules to develop new treatment strategies for Diffuse Pontine Glioma.

Summary
Brief summary
The main goal of the study is to grow cells in the laboratory from tumours of patients with diffuse brainstem glioma and similar brainstem tumours. The aim of the results of the study is to help develop new and better treatments for patients with these types of tumours and help in choosing the right treatment for each patient and be able to predict which patients are more likely or not to respond to a certain type of treatment
