Using 3D printing technology to study the biology and treatment of neuroblastoma 

We are providing funding of over £116,000 to Dr Olga Piskareva and her team at the Royal College of Surgeons in Ireland (RCSI).  In this project, Dr Piskareva aims to use 3D printing technology to engineer a novel experimental model and study the biology, and subsequent treatment of, neuroblastoma. “Thanks to funding from Neuroblastoma UK and its dedicated supporters...we hope to develop more effective treatments for children with neuroblastoma, with more tolerable side-effects.”

Trustees are walking over cancer this Childhood Cancer Awareness Month

Neuroblastoma UK’s Chair of Trustees, Tony Heddon and the Charity’s Secretary, Shirley Clark took part in the Thames Bridges Trek on Saturday 7th September, raising over £1,600 for neuroblastoma research.

Shirley, along with Tony and his family, were “#GoingGold for Joanna”, walking in memory of Shirley’s daughter who sadly passed away in 1995, aged eight, after being diagnosed with neuroblastoma.
