Congratulations to Paul Sondel, MD, PhD, who has been awarded a one-year Impact Grant from Hyundai Hope on Wheels, a nonprofit organization dedicated to finding a cure for childhood cancer. This $100,000 award will support his research, "Innate and Adaptive Immunotherapy to Eradicate Immunologically Cold Neuroblastoma," in which Dr. Sondel and his team will develop combination immunotherapy regimens, activating both innate and adaptive immune responses, to eradicate immunologically cold neuroblastomas in mice in order to translate these regimens to potent anti-neuroblastoma clinical therapy. Dr. Sondel and Wisconsin children affected by cancer were honored in a June hand-print ceremony at American Family Children's Hospital.
