- Dr. Kieran’s team now has the critical ability to obtain tumor tissue directly from patients and use it to develop improved treatments.
- The team can now develop animal models of these tumors which enable them to test preclinical treatments in animals and identify those with the most potential, rather than testing these drugs in children.
Over the past 30 years researchers had been striving for these breakthroughs and now, thanks to funding from Zach’s Fund, they are a mainstay of research on diffuse pontine gliomas. We are moving towards our goal to find a cure … please come with us and make a tax deductible donation now.
