RESEARCH & TREATMENT – Current Projects

Ethics Think Tank

The Ethics Think Tank team employs the scientific method to identify and explore the ethics of research funding within a landscape that includes academics, industry, regulatory, and patients. This group’s first project has been presented at an international conference and published. The team is constantly evolving and during the next phase called the Patient Advocate Industry Relationships (PAIR) Project, the team will draw on extant resources and developing new resources to assist non-profit organizations as they strive to support pediatric cancer drug development ethically.
