We're so proud to be a part of this first-of-it's-kind collaborative research conference for Childhood Cancer! Make Some Noise President, Julie Sutherland, who also serves on the board of the Coalition Against Childhood Cancer (CAC2), helped spearhead the Research Interest Group, and Co-Chaired this terrific scientific meeting with Phil Renna, (Christina Renna Foundation), and Donna Ludwinski, (Solving Kids Cancer).
"From Bench to Bedside and Beyond" was co-hosted by Cold Spring Harbor Laboratory and CAC2 on October 30 - November 1, 2016. It was a critical examination of emerging technologies, drug development, and therapeutics utilized in pediatric cancers. Our intent was to unite the childhood cancer community in a collaborative forum to advance research for childhood cancers. This multi-day exchange of ideas and networking was attended by the full range of stakeholders, including researchers, funders, advocates, and representatives from industry and governmental agencies.
