Since its creation at the end of 2011, Imagine for Margo has allocated nearly 6 Million euros to finance 9 French and European research programs in order to accelerate the research against childhood cancer.
We want to give researchers the means to better understand childhood cancer and to find innovating, specific and more efficient treatments in order to better cure children.
BETTER UNDERSTAND AND BETTER CURE: TARGET THERAPIES
WHAT BETTER UNDERSTAND MEANS:
It means finding the weakness of the tumor and target the best possible treatment. It also consists in having a molecular and immunologic analysis thanks to the complete sequencing of tumors. We have financed the launch of major transversal programs for the complete sequencing of tumors (all kinds of cancers and leukemia), both in relapse and upon diagnosis.
Tumor analyzes and immune systems
to find an adapted and personalized treatment
WHAT BETTER CURE MEANS:
It means proposing better adapted, better targeted and therefore more effective medicines. We have financed therapeutic trials on most frequent and most aggressive pediatric tumors, and the world’s first trial of target therapies and immunotherapy for all kinds of cancers and leukemia.
Other projects financed by Imagine for Margo:
- Thesis on the development of osteosarcomas, Dr Sarah Morice, CHU Nantes
- Mapping and new target therapies on children’s sarcomas, Dr Marie Castets, Centre Léon Bérard, Lyon
