Queen Máxima of the Netherlands officially opened the Princess Máxima Center for Pediatric Oncology in Utrecht, the Netherlands. In this unique center, all high-complex care, research and training for childhood cancer are concentrated and integrated.
With an academic and clinical career that spanned more than 40 years, Dr. Larry Kun, 72, changed the way children with brain tumors are treated. In doing so, he impacted countless lives.
Dr. Alex Kentsis is a pediatric oncologist and scientist at Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center, a father of two and the newest Robert J. Arceci Innovation Award winner. Unlike traditional grants which come with restrictions and are specific and constrained in their scope, this three-year, $250,000 grant allows researchers the freedom and flexibility to follow their passion for kids’ cancer research, their curiosity and the science, wherever it leads.
