Two Conquer Cancer Foundation grants from the American Society of Clinical Oncology (ASCO) awarded

One current and one former Pediatric Hematology/Oncology fellow have won Conquer Cancer Foundation grants from the American Society of Clinical Oncology (ASCO).

Heather Helton, MD, will receive ASCO’s Young Investigator Award, which provides research funding during the final years of a doctor’s medical training to encourage an interest in research and jumpstart their careers as physician-scientists. She is investigating biologic and clinical implications of ETV6 genomic variations in AML.

Rebecca Gardner, MD, will receive a 3-year Career Development Award for her study of autologous T cells genetically modified to express a CD19 specific chimeric antigen receptor to treat pediatric relapsed acute lymphoblastic leukemia.
