Roadtrip USA: Visiting top researchers
This was far from your average road trip.
Liz and Celia, were joined by Debbie Clark, Connor’s aunt & RCD Fund USA’s research liaison and Director of the Brain Cancer Discovery Collaborative, Prof. Terry Johns, to meet with several key peadiatric brain cancer research specialists and their impressive teams across the US and Canada:
- Nicholas Foreman at Denver Children’s, Colorado
- Richard Gilbertson at St Jude’s in Memphis, Tennessee
- Michael Taylor at Sick Kids in Toronto, Canada
These men are at the forefront of pediatric brain cancer research, and in particular work being done on ependymoma. All expressed optimism in the potential of uncovering real progress in treatments as a result of better understanding of the disease itself.
We are committed to helping link Australia into any collaborative efforts that come out of their research.
