The Beat Childhood Cancer Research Consortium is a group of 50+ universities and children’s hospitals that offer a worldwide network of childhood cancer clinical trials coordinated by Atrium Health Levine Children’s in Charlotte, North Carolina. These trials are based on the research from a group of closely collaborating investigators who are linked with laboratory programs developing novel therapies for high-risk pediatric cancers.

Our mission is to continue to use precision medicine to bring forward new therapies for children with cancer with the goal of finding a cure for these patients.


  • Treated the FIRST patient on BCC018 protocol adding Naxitamab to Induction Therapy for High-Risk Neuroblastoma (Kapi’olani Medical Center)
  • Treated the FIRST brain tumor (DIPG) patient with patient-specific activated T-Cells against their cancer (xALT infusion) on the BCC017 protocol (University of Florida).
  • Established a national Precision Medicine Program to include Molecular Tumor Boards and a personalized approach to patient care.

Several publications were released in 2022, notably TB-403 Paper, Landscape Paper, and Nifurtimox Paper (in submission). In addition, nine posters and oral presentations were also presented at AACR, ASCO, SIOP and ASPHO conferences in 2022.
