CHOP expert Dr. Garrett Brodeur honored for career work in neuroblastoma
Date:5/15/2014

most cases of hereditary neuroblastoma.

Another major focus of his research has been on the role of TRK receptor tyrosine kinases, a family of signaling proteins that control the clinical behavior of neuroblastomas. His preclinical work led to a clinical trial with a novel drug that selectively blocks these signals. He is now working on the second generation of such drugs, as well as on nanoparticle delivery systems to treat patients more effectively, and with less toxicity.

Brodeur has been a member of the CHOP medical staff since 1993 and holds the Audrey E. Evans Endowed Chair in Pediatric Oncology at the Hospital. He also is a professor of Pediatrics in the Perelman School of Medicine at the University of Pennsylvania, where he is an associate director of the Abramson Cancer Center. Last year, Brodeur received the prestigious Pediatric Oncology Award from the American Society of Clinical Oncology (ASCO).

This is only the third time that ANRA has presented the Lifetime Achievement Award. It first honored Dr. Audrey E. Evans in 2000. Evans, now retired, did pioneering research on neuroblastoma at The Children's Hospital of Philadelphia and hosted the original Advances in Neuroblastoma Research meetings at CHOP, beginning in 1975. In 2012, ANRA honored Dr. Manfred Schwab of the German Cancer Research Center in Heidelberg, who first identified the MYCN oncogene in neuroblastoma.
