I would like to take this opportunity of the International Childhood Cancer Day (ICCD) to thank everyone in our community for your wonderful support to our cause (no child should die of cancer) and all the work your are doing on a daily basis to make this dream come true.
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.
