Walensky Running Buffers

Walensky Running Buffers

The Walensky laboratory comprises a multidisciplinary group of young scientists, training as Dana-Farber postdoctoral fellows in pediatric oncology, graduate students in the chemical and biological sciences graduate programs at Harvard Medical School, and post-baccalaureate research technicians. Our mission is to dissect and target the aberrant molecular pathways that cause treatment resistance in pediatric cancer. In doing so, we work to advance next generation therapies for relapsed and refractory pediatric malignancies.

Honored hero

Ben Brewer was diagnosed with stage IV high risk neuroblastoma, unfavorable tumor with the NMYC non-amplified in February of 2004. He was 2 1/2 years old. He endured multiple rounds of high dose chemotherapy, many surgeries, stem-cell transplant, radiation to the abdomen, oral chemotherapy and antibody therapy - all at Columbus Children's Hospital. After 15 months of intensive treatment, he was declared NED (no evidence of disease) and remains so today!
