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.

I joined cc-TDI half a year after it was founded, and my first major task at the lab was to begin operations and setup at the (then new) Beaverton lab space. I arrived at an empty lab relatively uncertain I had found the proper spot, but more confident as I discovered a dozen heavy wooden tables ready to be constructed. I have truly been around since the first lab bench was set up. And to see where cc-TDI is now, with a cast and crew of fantastic and daring researchers, a community of families and
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.
