Our twice-yearly newsletter shares exciting progress we’re making in children’s cancer research.

In this issue, there’s an update on a promising leukaemia drug called PR-104, a profile of brain cancer researcher Dr Maria Tsoli and an article about how parents of children with cancer are helping guide our research.

Last, but not least, is a story is about an incredible trek to raise money for our research. Childhood cancer survivor, Nikki Quinn, is trekking Machu Picchu this month. Her goal is to raise $10,000 and she’s been training hard. You can read more or donate here.

And did you know this? In the past year, contributions from donors helped us:

  • support the work of over 200 world-class researchers and support staff
  • investigate 22 different types of childhood cancer
  • test approximately 250,000 compounds in our Drug Discovery Centre
  • grow 42,687 cell cultures in the lab
  • receive 1663 tumour samples from 498 patients
  • support 4 clinical trials in hospitals around the world.

See more about how donations are helping us do our work in the latest issue of LabNotes (pdf, 0.7M).
