Scientists at Howard Hughes Medical Institute have developed unique mouse models of 12 children’s cancers that could provide the basis for testing drugs and other life-saving research. The US institute offered up years of this research in hope that sharing it for free with the scientific community will accelerate research into children’s cancer and potentially new drug development. The results of the project, published in the journal Nature, cover the genetic make-up of 12 types of childhood tumours, as well as how these cancers react to certain drugs in the lab.
