“It’s an exciting time in increasing our understanding of this disease. We need to keep the momentum up – from finding mutations, to understanding how they work and how they impact clinical decisions. This is an exciting time to advance this project.”
– Dr. Suzanne Baker, PhD St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital
“We haven’t moved the needle in decades, and that is unacceptable for kids and families. When my patients get the diagnosis, I meet with the family for the first time, and we’re already talking about end of life. That is unacceptable. We need the courage to move to precision medicine and take risks to save these kids.”
– Dr. Sabine Mueller, MD University of California, San Francisco
