Michigan Medicine was selected largely because of the transformative work being done at the Chad Carr Pediatric Brain Tumor Center.
Tumour cells can plug into — and feed off of — the brain’s complex network of neurons, according to a trio of studies. This nefarious ability could explain the mysterious behaviour of certain tumours, and point to new ways of treating cancer.
The hope of finding a cure for DIPG continues to grow as Dr. Sriram Venneti of Michigan Medicine has received a grant from the National Institutes of Health.
See how research has progressed since Chad’s diagnosis and how funding research is beginning to create change.
