Right now, we are funding 15 world-class research projects. Some of these projects include developing new drugs tailored to an individual child’s condition so that we can reduce, if not avoid, harmful side effects and improve their treatment; scholarships to support the career development of the most promising childhood cancer researchers; and clinical trials for some of the hardest to treat kids’ cancer types.
