Tom Coughlin Reunites with 2011 Champions to Tackle Childhood Cancer [Video]

Ten years ago, the 2011 New York Giants put together their second championship season in four years under head coach Tom Coughlin. On Oct. 15, the coach and his players reunited to tackle another challenge: childhood cancer.

Coughlin is the founder of the Jay Fund, a charity that supports families of children battling the disease. On Friday, at the organization's annual gala in New York City, the 2011 Giants served as honorees for an event that raised $1.6 million.

Since its founding in 1996, the Jay Fund has provided approximately $15 million to more than 5,000 families with children suffering from cancer in the New York City and Jacksonville, Fla. areas, where Coughlin coached the NFL's Giants and Jacksonville Jaguars.

The organization's guiding belief is that the sacrifices made by families of children with cancer are extraordinary — and often overlooked. In a 2019 interview with PEOPLE, Coughlin, citing the National Children's Cancer Society, said …

Alternative method to animal testing for developing therapies against childhood cancer [Video]

Congratulations to St. Anna Children’s Cancer Research Institute (St. Anna CCRI) scientists Univ. Prof. Dr. Heinrich Kovar and Dr. Branka Radic-Sarikas for winning a grant from the Austrian Science Fund (FWF) under the program “Alternative methods to animal testing”. By using state-of-the-art technologies like single cell and spatial transcriptomics, organoids and 3D-bioprinting, the research project MetLung aims at creating and validating patient-specific 3D-models of lung metastatic solid tumors, ultimately guiding personalized drug selection. Metastasis is a major cause of death for children and adolescents with cancer, and the most common location of pediatric solid tumor metastases is the lung. “Our failure to cure patients with metastasis is partly due to a lack of understanding of tumor and niche cell interactions, and the associated mechanisms of treatment resistance. Knowledge about mediators of metastasis common to different tumor types may unravel novel therapeutic targets”, explains Branka Radic-Sarikas. “In this project we develop innovative in vitro models recapitulating the full complexity of lung metastases to test novel treatments. This approach will allow us to prioritize the most promising compounds for clinical development thus significantly reducing the need for pre-clinical testing in animals”, concludes Heinrich Kovar.

Lydia Finley, PhD - 2020 Pershing Square Sohn Cancer Research Prize Winner [Video]

Lydia Finley, PhD, Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center: Dr. Finley focuses on pediatric cancer and how cancer cell metabolism affects pediatric malignancies. Through her work, she hopes to find potentially targetable vulnerabilities in pediatric sarcomas by studying the metabolic pathways that sustain their growth and progression.
