Exciting New NCI Award
We are thankful to be one of a handful of recipients of an R01 supplement exceeding $200k in response to the Carolyn Price Walker Act. This award to our laboratory and the Northwest Sarcoma Foundation is meant to increase awareness of the improved outcomes of childhood cancer patients when treated at specialized, multi-disciplinary centers. We also have a project to increase awareness of the value of biopsy samples for scientific research when tumors grow despite treatment. Many thanks to the great number of people on the team at Doernbecher Children's Hospital, Melissa Hill at the Northwest Sarcoma Foundation, and Nancy Goodman of Kids vs Cancer for making this possible.
