Our thanks to the KMGF

The Kyla McCullough Gift Fund graciously provided funds to purchase a very useful new instrument - a multiwell electroporator.  We are grateful to Kyla's family and the KMGF community of supporters for making this possible.  It really accelerates what we do - and expands the kinds of experiments that can be performed!

Banbury Conference on Rhabdomyosarcoma

This past week the Cold Spring Harbor Laboratory held a special Banbury Conference to critically examine scientific and translational progress in rhabdomyosarcoma.  Through the kind sponsorship of members of the community, an international group of clinicians, cancer scientists and muscle biologists met to discuss driving clinical & biological problems in pediatric, adolescent and young adult rhabdomyosarcoma.  From this meeting will come a "white paper" describing prioritizes areas for further development - and collaborative opportunities.  We are grateful to the CSHL Banbury staff, as well as the CSHL leadership, for making this very unique meeting possible.
