Novel Clinical Research Webinar for Families, Caregivers and Researchers
August 29, 2013
To help increase awareness about the latest developments in clinical research/trials for kids with neuroblastoma and other deadly childhood cancers, SKC has started a 30-minute Webinar series geared towards families, caregivers and researchers.
Join us online Thursday, August 29 from 4:00PM - 4:30PM EST for our webinar entitled, "Immunotherapy for Neuroblastoma/Solid Tumors using a Child's Own Genetically modified T-cells "
This type of immunotherapy is at the vanguard of clinical cancer research and has demonstrated early dramatic results including complete responses in some adults and children with blood cancers. Researchers are now attempting to duplicate this success with pediatric solid tumors.
We are excited to have Dr. Chrystal Louis, Assistant Professor of Pediatrics - Hematology/Oncology at Baylor College of Medicine and Texas Children's Hospital present an overview of this next-generation immunotherapy that will be in clinical trials for childhood cancers within months. Dr. Louis and her colleagues at Baylor/Texas Children's are among the leading investigators in the world in novel immunotherapy for childhood cancers. This is a great opportunity to hear from the researchers themselves in a convenient and lay-friendly format.
REGISTER TODAY by emailing email@example.com
There will be an opportunity for Questions & Answers at the conclusion of the presentation.
This webinar is limited to the first 100 registrants. We look forward to you joining us.

Solving Kids' Cancer Junior Board member Whitney Scully and the MIT Sloan MBA class of 2014 held an auction to benefit SKC on Wednesday December 11 in Boston. Whitney's MBA student group, called "Indian Ocean" is made up of 65 students at MIT from all over North America, South America, Europe, Africa, and Asia.
Together, they created and obtained 195 unique items for auction. Some of the items up for auction include tutoring, homemade dinners, delicious crepes, a week in a home in Brazil and a weekend apartment in the West Village neighborhood of Manhattan.
