We’re very pleased to announce the winner of the B*CURED 2023 Grant for Brain Cancer research is Dr. Jeffrey Russ, Assistant Professor of Pediatric Neurology at Duke University. Dr. Russ submitted an innovative proposal to investigate a programmable, cell-type-specific, RNA-based chemotherapy to treat diffuse intrinsic pontine glioma (DIPG), a devastating, incurable pediatric brainstem glioma.
Dr. Russ received his BA in Neuroscience from the University of Pennsylvania and his MD, PhD from the Weill Cornell/Sloan Kettering/Rockefeller University MD-PhD Program.
We are excited to be supporting Dr. Russ’s work and wish him the best of luck in pursuit of his aims!
