The Pediatric Oncology Translational Research Laboratory (POTRL) at Atrium Health is truly unique with the work being done supporting active clinical trials, as well as looking at preclinical models that will eventually lead to future clinical trials and novel drug combinations. Research is often thought of as being decades away from the clinic, but here, the work is actively helping patients today.
The main areas of research within the Pediatric Oncology Translational Research Laboratory include personalized medicine through the Precision Medicine Program, neuroblastoma research, ewing sarcoma research, rhabdomyosarcoma research, and rare brain tumor research (including DIPG, ETMR, and ATRT).
