Hope for Pediatric Cancer

Dr. Rajen Mody

Breakthroughs in genomic sequencing by Arul Chinnaiyan, M.D., Ph.D., have led to important discoveries about the molecular makeup of prostate cancer, creating promise for better screening and targeted therapies. Using similar techniques, Dr. Chinnaiyan is collaborating across many areas of cancer with scientists such as Rajen Mody, M.D., pictured above. Dr. Mody’s pediatric cancer team is performing individual, personalized genomic analysis in real time to discover new treatment possibilities for children with aggressive, recurring or rare cancers. As one of very few programs in the country to take this personalized approach, we are now able to offer new hope for young adults and children who have run out of options.
