PROJECT TYPE Research
"Childhood neuroblastoma, the most common cancer of infants, urgently needs new therapies. Our research has linked neuroblastoma development to “brown fat” tissue, the highest levels of which are found in infants. This project has the potential to provide a completely new therapeutic approach for this disease and other childhood cancers."
