In July 2006, Florida state legislation was signed creating the Florida Center for Brain Tumor Research.
Since the beginning, FCBTR has been funding competitive pilot research projects for cutting edge scientific proposals, which hope to lead the way to discovery of brain tumor cures and the development of improved brain tumor treatment modalities.

ReMission Summit is a workshop for leading brain tumor researchers and clinicians, industry innovators, and government neuro-oncology experts. Sponsored by University of Florida Trustee Anita Zucker and Orlando Businessman, Harris Rosen, and organized by leading neuro-oncology researcher Duane A. Mitchell, MD, PhD, this summit joins forces across disciplines, institutions, and the usual borders that all too often stymie effective research. The ReMission Summit will focus on the latest advances in targeted immunotherapy approaches for the treatment of adult and pediatric brain tumors and outline the unanswered questions, challenges, and opportunities that lay ahead for advancing the duration and quality of life for patients with brain tumors.
