Biology Committee

Co-Chairs: James Amatruda and Matthew Murray

MaGIC’s biologic research brings together basic scientists, clinicians, and others interested in the biology of germ cell development and GCTs to foster the exchange of data and ideas, and to promote collaboration through multi-investigator, multi-institution funding applications for bench-to-bedside and bedside-to-bench translational research.

The Committee hosts a monthly webinar series, which features presentations from researchers in a number of different specialties working on different aspects of germ cell tumor biologic inquiry.  if you are interested in joining the monthly webinars, please email

MaGIC is also working to facilitate standardization across specimen collection and handling (please see MaGIC Biospecimen Collection SOP)
