Pediatric Cancer Researcher Awarded $1.1M Quantum Grant

Hyundai Hope on Wheels recently awarded Richard Vile, PhD, a $1.1M Quantum Grant, funds specifically awarded to support research on pediatric cancers with low survival rates.  Dr. Vile and his research team, who develop experimental cancer therapies based on stimulating antitumor immune responses, will use the grant to focus on new treatments for aggressive pediatric brain tumors, particularly tumors of the brainstem, which currently have a dismal prognosis because their anatomical location is an area susceptible to toxicities associated with reactions of tumors to treatment.  MORE INFORMATION
