Jonathan McConathy M.D., Ph.D.
Funded: 07-01-2017 through 06-30-2018
Funding Type: Research Grant
Institution Location: Birmingham, AL
Institution: University of Alabama at Birmingham affiliated with Children's of Alabama

Brain tumors are the most common solid tumor in children, and diagnostic imaging guides almost every step in the care of children with brain tumors. However, currently available imaging methods have limited accuracy. Dr. McConathy is using an amino acid tagged with radioactivity (FET) to detect abnormal metabolism in tumor tissue using positron emission tomography (PET) in combination with magnetic resonance imaging (MRI). He expects this new imaging technique to improve the ability to see brain tumors before and after surgery to help doctors better plan the treatment of children with brain tumors. In the long term, Dr. McConathy expects FET-PET/MRI to help select and plan the best therapies and increase the chance of achieving cures.

New Approaches to Neuroblastoma Therapy (NANT) Consortium
Funded: 07-01-2017 through 06-30-2018
Funding Type: Consortium Research Grant
Institution Location: Los Angeles, CA
Institution: Children's Hospital Los Angeles

Only 45% of children with high-risk neuroblastoma (NB) are cured. The New Approaches to Neuroblastoma Therapy (NANT) consortium links laboratory and clinical investigators to develop therapies with high potential for improving survival and performs the first testing of these treatments at 14 neuroblastoma centers in North America and 3 in Australia, United Kingdom, and France. NANT studies aim 1) to enhance the ability of the immune system to eliminate NB by targeting both NB cells and surrounding normal cells that help tumor cells grow and resist treatments; 2) to improve treatment of NB using small molecule drugs that target NB gene abnormalities that “drive” tumor aggressiveness including abnormal/mutated ALK protein or abnormally increased MYCN protein; and 3) to use molecular biology to define new treatment targets in NB and normal cells that enhance NB growth and resistance to therapy to improve prediction of outcome with a “biomarker” test for NB cells in blood and bone marrow. The NANT consortium anticipates that these innovative studies will improve survival for children with high-risk neuroblastoma.
