Childhood cancer research grant awarded to the Research Institute at Nationwide Children's Hospital
Date:1/17/2012

It takes life-saving research and access to clinical trials to help children with cancer. The St. Baldrick's Foundation, a volunteer-driven charity dedicated to raising money for childhood cancer research, awarded an infrastructure grant of $47,000 to the Biopathology Center (BPC), housed in The Research Institute at Nationwide Children's Hospital. The Foundation's infrastructure grants provide institutions with resources to enable them to conduct more research and enroll more kids in ongoing clinical trials their best hope for a cure.

Worldwide, more than 160,000 children are diagnosed with cancer each year and it remains the leading cause of death by disease among children in the United States. With only 4 percent of all federal cancer research funding dedicated to pediatric cancer research, and more than 70 percent of children receiving treatment through clinical trials, St. Baldrick's Foundation infrastructure grants are critical to finding cures for all childhood cancers.

"We are very thankful for the recent award provided to us by the St. Baldrick's Foundation," said Nilsa C. Ramirez, M.D., Medical Director of the BPC and Director of Surgical Pathology in the Department of Pathology and Laboratory Medicine at Nationwide Children's. "This award will be used to purchase the Cray CX1-iWS system to act as a Digital Pathology Analytics Engine (DPAE), providing an electronic quality assurance program. This system will analyze tissue images using computer algorithms that have been built and tested at our BPC. As new images are generated, the DPAE will automatically review and identify flaws prior to sharing images with the expert pathologists. The use of the DPAE will significantly accelerate the pace of providing high quality whole slide images by reducing technician time and allowing us to automatically evaluate image quality. These images are analyzed for various purposes, including evaluation of material used in cutting edge pediatric tr
