Feinstein Institute to Receive $330,000 Grant to Support Research of Childhood Cancer
Date:9/19/2013

Manhasset, NY (PRWEB) September 19, 2013

The Feinstein Institute for Medical Research announced today it will receive $330,000 in grants aimed at gaining a better understanding of a pediatric cancer syndrome called Diamond Blackfan anemia. The grants were awarded by the St. Baldrick’s Foundation, a volunteer-driven and donor-centered charity dedicated to raising money for childhood cancer research. It will support the work of a Feinstein Institute physician-researcher and consortium.

Sharon Singh, MD, will receive $230,000 to support her research project focused on Diamond Blackfan anemia. Diamond Blackfan anemia is an inherited condition that leads to anemia, possible birth defects and cancer. Dr. Singh’s team is working to understand the conditions that promote the formation and survival of cancer cells in this syndrome, to improve early diagnosis and treatment of childhood cancer.

“I am very thankful to receive this grant as it will support me in working to identify what conditions may lead to the development of cancer in children,” said Dr. Singh. “If my colleagues and I can identify why certain children develop cancer while others do not, we may be able to prevent future children from suffering from cancer.”

The Pediatric Myelodysplastic Syndromes and Ribosome Dysfunction Consortium at the Feinstein Institute, led by Johnson Liu, MD, will receive $100,000 to support ongoing work. The consortium is focused on a group of childhood disorders including Diamond-Blackfan anemia. Specifically, the researchers who comprise the consortium are exploring different ways they can manage Diamond-Blackfan anemia once a patient is diagnosed with it so that it doesn’t lead to anemia and cancer.
