Gibson receives grant for study of childhood cancer

Primary tabs

Professor Greg Gibson (Biology) has received a 1 year pilot grant from the AFLAC Cancer Center for “Genomic profiling of late outcomes in survivors of childhood cancer". The study involves a collaboration with Drs. Ann Mertens and Karen Wasilewski in the Department of Hematology/Oncology at Emory University, and Dr. Ken Brigham, Director of the Center for Health Discovery and Well Being (CHDWB) at Emory. The objective of the project is to use a systems biology approach to try to understand why so many survivors of early childhood cancers begin to have a range of serious health problems as they reach adulthood, and to see if the CHDWB health care model might be an effective intervention.
