VR funding to Ruth Palmer
The Swedish Reasearch Council (Vetenskapsrådet, VR) is granting Ruth Palmer 4.8 million SEK.
She recieves the funding for the project Exploring ALK downstream signaling for improved targeted therapies and future treatment of Neuroblastoma. The lab is now able to continue our work towards a molecule or set of molecules that when targeted kills off the tumor cells while leaving healthy tissue unaffected. While the lab has been able to, in the past, find treatment options for individual patients1 2, we are still looking to discover a therapy that is effective on an entire patient group.
