CDI Researcher's Work Earns $1 Million Funding from Hyundai

Dr. Druley, a Washington University School of Medicine associate professor of pediatrics and a St. Louis Children's Hospital oncologist, aims to improve outcomes in children with AML. This cancer of the bone marrow results in 50% of pediatric cancer deaths. One reason for poor outcomes is the inability to precisely judge genetic differences in the disease both before and after treatment. This HHOW Quantum Award will leverage a multi-disciplinary team of pediatric leukemia experts to study very rare AML mutations in order to tailor therapies to the unique biology of children—improving treatments and increasing survival rates.
