TGen hosts international conference for leading pediatric cancer researchers, foundations
Date:2/6/2012

e field of pediatric oncology.

This conference is an example of bringing together the right group of doctors, at the right time in the history of medical science, to set the stage for studies just starting to use a patient's own cancer genome to custom design their therapy.

"This is an opportunity for leading pediatric researchers from across the country and internationally to share information and help set the course for the future of pediatric cancer clinical trials," said Dr. Jeffrey Trent, TGen's President and Research Director and a conference organizer. "The collaborative model behind this conference is a perfect example of how public-private partnerships positively move research and treatment forward at a pace not seen before."

A recent example of a successful public-private initiative is Dell's major commitment of funding to TGen, involving employee engagement and cloud computing technology to back pediatric cancer research programs globally. Their support included support for the world's first personalized medicine trial for pediatric cancer conducted by the Neuroblastoma and Medulloblastoma Translational Research Consortium (NMTRC). The NMTRC is a group of over a dozen universities, research institutions and children's hospitals headquartered at Van Andel Research Institute (VARI) that offer a nationwide network of childhood cancer clinical trials. "What we want to find are more targeted therapies therapies that are specific for those cancer cells that do not harm the rest of the child," said Dr. Giselle Sholler, Co-Director of the Pediatric Translational Research Program at VARI and a conference organizer. "Currently, we use chemotherapy that attacks the whole body. About half of the patients relapse, and when they do there is no cure."

Along with Drs. Trent and Sholler, other members of the conference organizing committee who will make presentations are:

  • Dr. Javed Khan, National Cancer Institute <
