The Musella Foundation announced that it has awarded a $5,000 Brain Tumor research grant to Ninh Doan, MD, PhD, of the Medical College of Wisconsin.
We gave a $50,000 grant last year to this researcher and the project is looking good. He wanted to expand it to include Medulloblastomas, which is a mostly pediatric brain tumor type. Hopefully, if succesful, it should also help many other tumor types.
