News: The 10th annual Boo! Run to support renal cell cancer research was a huge success
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.

program under the Foundation for the National Institutes of
Health (FNIH), which is an established 501(c)(3) non-profit
