Project Details

Description

Neuroblastoma is a cancer of the cells that become nerve tissues in the body, except in the brain. Dr. Bernstein is studying the effect of a particular mutation in neuroblastoma – an event that alters the DNA sequence to promote cancer. This mutation lies in a gene called ATRX. Dr. Bernstein takes a genomics approach to understand how ATRX mutations promote neuroblastoma in order to discover new therapies for children with ATRX mutations.
