On this episode of the Healthcare Triage podcast, Aaron is talking to Dr. Karen Pollok and Dr. Jamie Renbarger about their research into the treatment of osteosarcoma and other pediatric cancers using personalized medicine. You’ll learn about the development of cell lines and creation of models that can be used to battle cancers. We’ll also hear about the experiences of one patient, Tyler Trent, who wondered about how the tissues he contributed to the research were used, and whose curiosity and willingness to share what he learned with the public has helped raise awareness of this kind of treatment.
IU School of Medicine is leading Indiana University’s first grand challenge, the Precision Health Initiative, with bold goals to cure multiple myeloma, triple negative breast cancer and childhood sarcoma and prevent type 2 diabetes and Alzheimer’s disease.
