AWS is providing $10 million to accelerate research for pediatric health care and to better understand rare diseases.

LBF Executive Director Nicole Giroux was honored to be in attendance at the Amazon Web Services DC Summit, when AWS announced a $10 million commitment to help nonprofit institutions leverage AWS to advance pediatric and children’s causes worldwide, with a $3 million philanthropic commitment to be distributed between three organizations: Children’s National Hospital in Washington, D.C.; Nationwide Children's Hospital in Columbus, Ohio; and the Children's Brain Tumor Network (CBTN), located at CHOP. The funding will help to provide access to vital research for a vulnerable patient population that often suffers from restricted resources and limited sample sizes.

LBF is a long-time partner and Executive Council Member of CBTN. CBTN is already working with AWS to make it easier to aggregate data to accelerate research and trials. This investment will help advance that work and bring more hope and options to families facing this horrible diagnosis.
