Musella Foundation awards 2 more pediatric brain tumor research grants!

Al Musella's Comments: (This is his personal views and are not necessarily the views of the Musella Foundation!)

Both of the grants we gave out today are urgent projects that needed to be done.  Thanks to the generosity of our donors, we were able to quickly approve them - both applications were received within the last 4 days and our dedicated medical advisory board were able to evaluate and approve them quickly!

Musella Foundation awards 2 more  pediatric brain tumor research grants! 
Hewlett, NY 12/10/18 - The Musella Foundation announced that it has awarded 2 grants for pediatric brain tumors today:
  1. $25,000 to Dr. Adam Green, from the University of Colorado School of Medicine, for the project: "Expanding Preclinical Work for a Phase 1/2 Trial of Selinexor and Radiation Therapy in Newly-Diagnosed DIPG and Diffuse Midline Glioma". This grant is from our DIPG All-In-Initiative fund.
  2. $12,500 to Dr. Simone Srendi, from the Ann and Robert H. Lurie Children's Hospital of Chicago, for the project: "Development of a novel, selective, orally bioavailable PLK4 inhibitor for the treatment of pediatric brain tumors". 

    Both of these projects have the potential to make a big difference to kids with brain tumors! 

    These grants top off our best year ever for funding brain tumor research.  We awarded 17 grants giving out a total of more than $650,000, as well as a pledge of $1 million over 3 years (of which $250,000 was paid this year).  We are starting to see exciting results from the project we funded in the past!
