Current Funded Project
The Meghan Rose Bradley Foundation currently supports research being pursued by Dr. Amir Sheikhi, Assistant Professor of Chemical Engineering at the Pennsylvania State University. The objective of his work is to develop a translational on-chip biomaterial platform that can be three-dimensionally seeded with brain tumor cells derived from pediatric patients that provides an environment that mimics the tumor and can be used for patient-specific anti-cancer drug testing and screening. The team plans to use an innovative material to culture the tumor cells that is highly flexible and simple to use. These results will have a positive impact by laying the foundationindeveloping new and translatable personalized pediatric cancer treatment.
