The money raised allows us to use novel approaches in laboratory based research to understand mechanisms that cause pediatric cancer and to find pathways that can be targeted with new drugs. It provides the infrastructure for early phase clinical trials to test how new drugs work and identify the best ways to use them together and with chemotherapy.
Local Research. Global Benefit.
Beyond providing the ability to offer superior care to the children at Penn State Children’s Hospital, the funds that we raise fund critical research in pursuit of a cure for childhood cancer. Penn State Children’s Hospital is now a leader in childhood cancer research and has been nationally recognized for their efforts, showing that our local research is having a truly global benefit.
