Simone Hettmer M.D.
Funded: 07-01-2014 through 11-30-2016
Funding Type: Research Grant
Institution Location: Freiburg im Breisgau, Germany
Institution: University Medical Center Freiburg

Rhabdomyosarcomas are the most common soft-tissue cancers in children and adolescents. Current treatments are often ineffective, and researchers need new ideas to treat this cancer. Dr. Hettmer has developed a new model of pleomorphic rhabdomyosarcoma, and is using this to show that a protein (Gremlin 1) produced by rhabdomyosarcoma tumors could be important. She is investigating how Gremlin 1 changes rhabdomyosarcoma behavior and whether it can serve as a drug target. Awarded at Children's Hospital Boston and transferred to Charité Universitätsmedizin Berlin.
