13 Mar 2009 – Launch of the Help Fight Childhood Cancer Project
The mission of the Help Fight Childhood Cancer project is to use World Community Grid to find drugs which can disable three particular proteins associated with neuroblastoma, one of the most frequently occurring solid tumors in children. Finding drugs to disable these proteins would potentially make the disease much more curable with chemotherapy. Neuroblastoma is one of the most common tumors in early childhood and often leads to death. If this project is successful, it could dramatically increase the cure rate for neuroblastoma.
