Cancer: Germ Cell Tumors
Consortium: Malignant Germ Cell International Consortium (MaGIC)
Headquarters: Dana-Farber Cancer Institute
Consortium Manager: Lindsay Klosterkemper,

The Malignant Germ Cell International Consortium brings together the world’s leading experts in germ cell tumors,  from across the spectrum of cancer research, with the shared goal of developing more effective treatments for germ cell tumors through scientific inquiry. Collaboration across a wide range of disciplines – clinical trialists, basic scientists, bioinformaticists, pathologists, statisticians, surgeons, epidemiologists – is allowing MaGIC to accelerate the pace of discovery and the promise of change. In 2019, the Pediatric Cancer Data Commons began working with MaGIC in order to integrate germ cell tumor data into the PCDC.
