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

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.”

Improving survival for children with rare cancer

Improving survival for children with rare cancer

Earlier this year, Neuroblastoma UK joined forces with childhood cancer charities Niamh’s Next Step and The Bradley Lowery Foundation to fund more vital research into neuroblastoma.

“...If this project is successful, it would hopefully lead to the subsequent development of a clinical antibody, for trial in children with neuroblastoma…”
