N-PhenoGENICS

Researchers have long been working to further understand the biology of cancer. It is the result of their hard work and dedication that the survivor rates have dramatically improved in the last 40 years. Unfortunately, effective treatment like chemotherapy has a long-lasting impact on individuals, leaving some to seriously struggle in school. Studying these long-term effects of cancer treatment can help researchers to devise effective approaches to correct them and safer therapies for newly diagnosed children. Our research could lead to ways to identify patients who are most vulnerable to the negative, long-term impacts of chemotherapy and who may benefit from treatments tailored to their genetic-makeup. This would reduce the burden of long-term care associated with functional impairments due to chemotherapy exposure.
