so help keep patients in remission by rapidly destroying tumor cells that might arise during relapse events," Jewell explains.

He adds that while the work is in the early stages, this technology could lead to new therapeutic technologies for treating other types of cancer.

"High risk tumors like neuroblastoma are treated with multiple therapeutic strategies with poor outcomes," says Dr. Anthony Sandler, chief of surgery at Children's National Medical Center, who is collaborating with Jewell on the project. "Cancer vaccines add another therapeutic option, but so far have had very limited success. The novel approach proposed in this work may provide the spark that stimulates effective immunity against the tumor."

"Cancer vaccines represent a new class of therapies, and biomaterials have great potential to treat cancers like neuroblastoma," says Jewell. "The ALSF's support and the clinical training we will receive through our collaboration with Children's National Medical Center have created an amazing opportunity. This investment will have a lasting impact on my lab's ability to contribute to the pediatric cancer field."
