    Inhibiting protein synthesis as a novel therapeutic treatment against DIPG

    "Diffuse Intrinsic Pontine Gliomas (DIPGs) are a brain tumour that represent the most aggressive of all childhood cancers. In this project, we aim to identify and develop the best combination therapeutic strategies using omacetaxine and test the top treatment strategies against our unique animal models of DIPG."
