During 2004 and 2012 the german cancer aid supported the german glioma network (GGN). The GGN is a consortium where university hospitals with clinical focus in neuro-oncology, reference centers for neuroradiology, neuropathology, molecular diagnostics and biometry cooperate. Thanks to the long-term support it was possible to build a network of competence centers for the treatment of brain tumors in Germany wich is characterized by a interdisciplinary collaboration of all specialist disciplines
