Brain Malignancies Steering Committee
The NCI Brain Malignancies Steering Committee (BMSC) was established in November 2010. It addresses the design, prioritization, and evaluation of concepts for large phase 2 and phase 3 clinical trials in adult brain cancers and all pediatric brain cancer trials. View the BMSC roster.
- BMSC Strategic Priorities were formulated with the goal that the majority of submitted concepts would align with these established priorities. They address areas of unmet clinical need, important unanswered clinical questions, and potential new approaches to disease treatment.

CTPMs are held periodically and focus on specific clinical trial related topics. The following are important BMSC CTPMs:
