News: Announcing the 14th annual Boo! Run to support renal cell cancer research

The Dean R. O'Neill Renal Cell Cancer Research Fund, founded in 2003, works in partnership with the National Heart, Lung, and Blood Institute (NHLBI) at the National Institutes of Health (NIH) to search for a cure for Renal Cell Carcinoma. Commonly referred to as Kidney Cancer, Renal Cell Carcinoma is an under-researched and growing disease, with over 50,000 cases diagnosed each year.

The fund sponsors a dedicated research program at the NIH to explore new and existing treatments, such as allogeneic stem cell transplantation, chemotherapy, radiation therapy, immunotherapy, vaccine therapy, and drug treatments. The program supports two renal cell cancer research fellows, the Dean R. O'Neill Fellow and the Rancic-O'Neill Fellow, who both work in conjunction with the laboratory of Dr. Richard Childs and the NHLBI.

Please visit the links to the left to learn more about the break-through discoveries in the Lab, current clinical trials, and more.

O'Neill Renal Cell Cancer Research Fund is a donor-advised program under the Foundation for the National Institutes of Health (FNIH), which is an established 501(c)(3) non-profit charitable organization.
