Dr. Sabine Mueller selected for grant to support innovative, translational pediatric brain cancer research.
The Helen Diller Family Comprehensive Cancer Center of the University of California, San Francisco and Kure It Cancer Research are pleased to announce that Sabine Mueller, M.D., Ph.D., will receive a 2015 HDFCCC-Kure It Cancer Research Grant for Underfunded Cancer Research.
The Helen Diller Family Comprehensive Cancer Center (HDFCCC) partnered with Kure It Cancer Research to provide a grant for underfunded cancer research. Funds are provided by a $100,000 award from Kure It Cancer Research, and will be matched with $100,000 from the HDFCCC for a single two-year award of $200,000. Kure It awards this grant in the name of the California Self Storage Association (CSSA). The CSSA is a pivotal partner of Kure It Cancer Research, and members of the association have contributed the funds for this important grant.
Mueller’s project “Using Hyperpolarized 13C Pyruvate to Assess Response in Pediatric Diffuse Intrinsic Pontine Glioma – A Non-invasive Response Biomarker” aims to develop tools that would allow assessment of early response to drugs that treat children with diffuse intrinsic pontine glioma (DIPG).
