On Monday, January 22, 2018, members of The Children’s Cancer Foundation, Inc. (CCF) Board of Directors were invited to tour the lab of Dr. Eric H. Raabe, MD, Ph.D, Assistant Professor of Oncology and Instructor of Pathology at the Johns Hopkins Kimmel Cancer Center.

Dr. Raabe is a 2017 CCF Grant Awardee, focusing his research on neuro-oncology, with the goal of developing therapeutics for poor prognosis brain tumors.  Dr. Raabe’s expertise is in stem cell biology. Dr. Raabe sees patients in the pediatric oncology outpatient clinic at Johns Hopkins, at the Smith Building of the Wilmer Eye Institute.

Dr. Raabe works closely with past CCF Awardee Charles Eberhart, M.D. and 2017 CCF Giant Food NextGen Awardee Jeffrey Rubens, M.D.

Board members Jerry Chadwick, John Carver, Karen Fernandez, JT Thomas, and Steven Coomes were able to tour the lab, seeing first-hand how tests are conducted and research is advanced.  With a team of graduate students and fellows, working alongside Dr. Raabe and his colleagues, incredible progress is made every day.

For CCF, a major goal of funding innovative and meaningful research is to find cures for cancers that afflict children.  We have spent 35 years investing in research to find such cures. Dr. Raabe and his team are moving us closer every day to finding new and innovative treatments.
