Research's Roundup Logo

Addressing childhood cancer is a top priority for CPRIT with 12 percent of our portfolio going to pediatric cancer research, which is proportionately three times more than the national rate. Earlier this month in Dallas, the Carson Leslie Foundation and CPRIT gathered the best minds in pediatric brain cancer research to chart ways forward for increasing collaboration. Presenters and attendees represented research institutions from around the state, discussing targeted therapies, immunotherapy, the opportunities presented through CPRIT-funded pediatric core facilities, and how best to address survivorship. Watch the video below to hear from participants themselves on the importance presenting a united front on addressing pediatric cancer.
