  • Dr. Poul Sorensen, British Columbia Cancer Research Centre

  • Dr. Craig Webb, Van Andel Research Institute

  • Dr. Chand Khanna, National Cancer Institute

  • Ms. Liz Jackson, The St. Baldrick's Foundation

  • Ms. Lisa Tichenor, What Would Willie Want (QuadW) Foundation

    Conference goals include: provide an informal mechanism for coordinating research and eliminating duplication; prioritize questions and agree on best practices to help move the field of pediatric oncology forward.

    "This conference will help establish a framework for how we merge science, medicine and technology so that we study the biology of the pediatric patient and their individual genomic differences, and then leverage the technology to put all that information together and make a decision how to treat the patient in front of us today, not six months or a year from now," said Dr. Lee Helman, Scientific Director for Clinical Research at the National Cancer Institute's Center for Cancer Research.

    A unique aspect of the conference centers on the participation and support from a number of leading pediatric cancer foundations that provide the patient's perspective to research and treatment, including St. Baldrick's Foundation; What Would Willie Want (QuadW) Foundation; CureSearch for Children's Cancer (who also sponsored 10 travel awards); Rally Foundation for Childhood Cancer Research (Rally); and Alex's Lemonade Stand Foundation.

    "The St. Baldrick's Foundation is honored to be sponsoring this meeting and partnering with other childhood cancer foundations to promote the best possible use of genomics in pediatric cancer research," said Liz Jackson, Director of Grants Administration, St. Baldrick's Foundation. "We are excited about the potential for using these new tools to bring about new treatments to give kids fighting cancer longer and healthier lives."
