Sam R. - Engineer Extraordinaire How Quail Eggs Help Cure Cancer! You might ask…how can quail eggs help cure cancer? This novel idea…was first automated by us!  What does it mean to automate the use of quail eggs?  We have begun to mechanize the system for testing cancer drugs on the quail eggs cracked in dishes. The quail eggs can be used for metastasis research, drug testing, toxicity testing, and xenograft models.  While mice models could be used for this, quail eggs are much cheaper and tumors grow quicker.  Our primary goal of the quail egg project is to design and automate the handling of the eggs. We then plan to automate the drug tests enabling us to run drug screens at low cost and less time. Once we have a reliable system for quail egg experimentation setup we can conduct large numbers of drug screens and hopefully identify several drugs to enter into clinical trials. We are creating faster smarter ways of creating a drug testing system based on quail eggs to aid children’s cancer research.  A gift from you will help us continue to develop new cancer treatments.  A gift from you supports the research lab, our team of scientists and engineers who make curing cancer possible AND projects like the quail eggs.   Each September we hope to raise much needed awareness of childhood cancers but we can’t do that without your help.  Please donate to stop fatal childhood cancers!  CLICK HERE TO DONATE NOW! Visit Us.  Be Inspired.  DONATE TODAY! Samuel Rasmussen, B.Sc  |  Mechanical EngineerChildren’s Cancer Therapy Development Institute
