Christian Capitini, MD, Receives Graduate School Fall Competition Award

Congratulations to Christian Capitini, MD, who was recently awarded a one-year grant from the UW Office of the Vice Chancellor for Research and Graduate Education for his project entitled, "Enhancing the graft-versus-tumor effect against neuroblastoma." This award, in the amount of $66,523, will allow his lab to study the use of allogenic bone marrow transplant models to optimize graft-versus-tumor effects against neuroblastoma without exacerbating graft-versus-host disease. Results of this proposal could provide a novel, targeted approach for treating neuroblastoma.
