Lyla Nsouli Foundation funds academic – pharma pilot study

The Lyla Nsouli Foundation is proud to announce the award of a 67,000 USD pilot grant to Dr. Sakir ‘Hume’ Gultekin, Neuropathologist and Associate Professor of Pathology, Oregon Health & Science University.  In this pilot study, Dr. Gultekin will examine a new set of cell surface receptors in diffuse intrinsic pontine glioma (DIPG) to determine whether their co-expression matches a profile consistent with novel therapeutic targets. While at the earliest stage of preclinical development, it is hoped that novel targets and unique therapeutic approaches might lead to a clinical trial for children with DIPG in the foreseeable future.
