CureSearch Supports Pediatric Cancer Translational Genomics Conference

CureSearch for Children’s Cancer is pleased to provide $20,000 in funding to the Translational Genomics Research Institute (TGen) for the Pediatric Cancer Translational Genomics conference taking place this week in Arizona.

As part of the sponsorship, CureSearch supported the attendance of 10 researchers at the conference, which provides an opportunity for scientists working to uncover the causes of children’s cancer to discuss how genomic research can be applied to better develop diagnostic tools and treatments for children’s cancers.

“As CureSearch continues to fund not only clinical trials but also basic and translational research, we are pleased to support such a cutting edge conference,” said John Lehr, president and CEO of CureSearch for Children’s Cancer. “We know that the participants at this conference are working to develop better approaches to treatment so that one day, every child can be guaranteed a cure.”
