To Make Childhood Cancer Universally Survivable

Our Mission

We are focused on the pre-clinical gap in childhood cancer research

The Children’s Cancer Therapy Development Institute was created with the aim to make childhood cancer universally survivable, regardless of diagnosis.

The Research

Creating more effective clinical trials for those childhood cancers that are most in need of treatment

Our research team is exploring and testing state-of-the-art treatment options for the most urgent issues facing children with cancer. By proving these methods in the laboratory, we can deliver smart, hope-filled discoveries to be prioritized in clinical trials for kids.
