    NAME Dr. Pei Liu
    CANCER TYPE Neuroblastoma
    INSTITUTION University of New South Wales
    STATE New South Wales
    GRANT TYPE $125,000
    PROJECT TYPE Research

    "I recently identified a new gene that is highly expressed in tumours from high-risk neuroblastoma patients. Suppressing the expression of this gene resulted in tumour eradication in mice. In this project, I will define the role of this gene in promoting neuroblastoma growth and test combination therapy targeting the gene."
