My daughter has a pHGG with the H3.3K27 mutation. We are considering a vaccination Clinical trial when she completes radiation. Our gut feeling is to do the Clinical trial that is specific to the H3.3K27 mutation as opposed to trial that is for either 3.3 or 3.1. Do you agree? Also, we have recently received some more specific information about her tumor genomic alterations (has Atrx, fgrr1, h3f3a, pik3ca) De we need to take that into consideration when choosing a trial? Thank you.

A lot of pediatric cancer sequencing data is still locked behind Data Access Committees, presumably for reasons of privacy and alignment with consent. Why can't forward-thinking patients (and parents) "free" their data to make them more accessible to the community?

Can you expand on the ways government agencies will work with community groups and foundations to help increase access to data to empower precision medicine?
