We are a nonprofit biotech lab on a mission to make childhood cancer universally survivable. Every year, the FDA approves on average 12 drugs to treat adult cancer, but has only approved 6 drugs to treat childhood cancer since 1978. We believe it’s time to do better.
Let's do better for
I am working towards a cure for hepatoblastoma by testing medicines on a quail assay I have been developing. My work focuses on a quail assay used to test drugs on hepatoblastoma. The first trial in building the quail assay is to have a reliable way to prepare the eggs. The original method required a great deal of dexterity and was typically performed by one our more skilled lab members with surgical experience. The device I built allows anyone to prepare the eggs after just one training session. Next, I had to get the tumors
Current Research Projects
A dedicated research team
Our research team is exploring and testing state-of-the-art treatment options for the most urgent issues facing children with cancer.
Working in our own freestanding research institution allows us to act swiftly and nimbly to achieve results—bringing cost control, speed, purpose, and focus to translate effective treatments into the clinic. To get there, we perform basic science and translational research in our industrial modern lab site (a paint factory remodeled by Nike as an off-site creative space), adjacent to the Silicon Forest in Oregon.
