Dear SIOP PPO member, We would like to inform you...
Hi readers! When are you planning to stop your studies? Well, if you are reading this post, I imagine you would say: “never”! We always have something to learn and being engaged in science requires a passion for what you are working on. If you are seeking to improve your career in academia, doing a postdoc is a great option.
What do we know about childhood cancer services around the world? We know that there is gross inequity – that where you live often determines whether you live. Children with cancer in high-income countries have an 80% chance of being cured, while those in low-income countries may have no chance at all. We speculated about the reasons but we need the data to start crafting the solutions.
Undergraduate students, health professionals, patients, patients’ families – all of you are invited to know about our routine in a research laboratory. I am Francianne, a Biomedical Scientist who has been studying cancer for a long time! What does motivate me? The challenge to understand the etiology of the disease, and thus working towards prevention and successful treatment. Today I would like to share with you what I have experienced in the lab.
Hi there! My name is Liliana and during the following weeks, our blog will be dedicated to our SIOP Young Investigator & Young Talent Award winners!
On August 9th, 2018, The East African Pediatric Hematology-Oncology Fellowship program celebrated the graduation of its first class of four fellows in Kampala, Uganda. This was just two months after 6 children and their parents rang the survivor bell at the Kamuzu National Referral Hospital in Malawi. Until recently, these milestones in pediatric healthcare in Africa were scarce.
