Medical Students Attend Pediatric Cancer Research Event

On April 7, eight Nova Southeastern University College of Osteopathic Medicine students interested in pediatrics attended the I Care I Cure Childhood Cancer Foundation’s Learn at Lunch medical research event held at Morton’s steakhouse in Fort Lauderdale. During the event, Katherine Matthay, M.D., of the University of California San Francisco spoke about her innovative targeted childhood cancer research, which is focused on “131 I-MIBG Imaging and Therapy for Neuroblastoma.”

“I Care I Cure invited the medical students to encourage young scientists to pursue research in the area of targeted therapy treatments for pediatric cancers, with the idea being if more really bright brains work on the problem, we will get closer to a solution,” said Beth-Ann Krimsky, the organization’s board president.
