About Us

Thank you very much for visiting the Columbia University NeuroCharity Softball website. We trust that this site will give you a clear understanding of our goals and direction. Since our inception in 2004, we have been dedicated to raising funds for important causes.

Through a combination of basic laboratory studies and clinical data from the operating room, neurosurgeons at Columbia University are providing answers to the difficult problems faced by children and their families. Our program is actively involved in basic and translational research. In addition to world-class surgical care, physicians are pushing the frontiers of neurosurgery to provide safer treatments and better solutions to problems once deemed hopeless.

It is only with financial support, however, that we will be able to carry out meaningful research and advance our knowledge of these diseases. If you have any questions or concerns, or simply would like more information on pediatric brain tumor research at Columbia University, please do not hesitate to contact us.
