The Role of Hematopoietic Cell Transplantation (Bone Marrow Transplantation) in Cancer Therapy
Learn about the biology of alloimmune responses in the context of an allogeneic hematopoietic cell transplantation as a balance between the graft-versus-tumor (GVT) effects and graft-versus-host disease (GvHD). Presented by Dr. Jacob Rozmus, Investigator & Pediatric Hematologist, BC Children's Hospital; Assistant Professor, Department of Pediatrics, UBC. (2019)
This week's Research Roundup covers babies' learning mechanisms that help them match unfamiliar voices to unfamiliar faces, the top risk factor that could signal greater disease severity in pediatric catecholaminergic polymorphic ventricular tachycardia, a virtual reality-based solution to reducing procedural anxiety in kids, and genetic testing for reducing diagnostic delay in monogenic inborn errors of immunity.
We believe there’s nothing we can’t do with your support. It can take years to turn scientific breakthrough into new interventions and treatments. Funding helps speed the pace of change. When given the resources, we can bring transformative therapies – and hope – out of the laboratory and into the clinic to save and improve children’s lives.
