Pediatric Cancer

Cancer Research Ideas - Pediatric Cancer (Archived)

Children are not just small adults; their cancers are different in many ways from those in older individuals. Improving childhood cancer outcomes requires both a better mechanistic understanding of cancer in general as well as an understanding of cancer in children specifically. Important issues to address include the molecular drivers of childhood cancer, which are often different from those of adult cancers; the causes of childhood cancer; and the development of therapies that are less toxic to children’s developing bodies.

The submission period for Pediatric Cancer ideas ended on July 1. However, we encourage you to sign up for regular e-mail updates about the National Cancer Moonshot Initiative at the Cancer Moonshot Milestones web page.

Radiogel. A Smart Bullet for Cancer!

This is in dedication to my father who was the ultimate Cancer Fighter! He was President of the National Association of Cancer Patients and all he wanted was to cure cancer! He felt he had a solution with medical isotopes but especially Radiogel.

Pediatric Cancer

From cause to prevention

The causes of pediatric cancer remain a mystery because its rarity necessitates case-control studies. However, now that variants related to ALL and NB are known, one can conceive of a putting together a prospective study among higher-risk kids
