Paul Sondel, MD, PhD, Awarded Alex’s Lemonade Stand Foundation Innovation Grant

Congratulations to Paul Sondel, MD, PhD, for his recent Innovation Grant award from Alex’s Lemonade Stand Foundation for his project entitled, “Identifying how Pre-existing Anti-Therapeutic Antibodies (PATA) are Associated with Better Outcome in a Clinical Trial of ADCC-inducing Anti-GD2 mAb.”

This two-year award, in the amount of $250,000, will help determine whether these PATA might be used to improve outcome for children receiving mAb treatment for cancer, either by using it as a selection criterion, or by using it to modify the design of mAb-based therapeutics or clinical trials that test them.
