To date, over $158,000 has been raised for Tali’s Fund. The funds provided by Tali's Fund have helped lead to a large collaborative study with contributions from 37 institutions from within Canada and around the world. The team of researchers at the Arthur and Sonia Labatt Brain Tumour Research Centre at SickKids Hospital recently published a research paper in the journal The Lancet Oncology. It is the largest study published to date on ATRT (Atypical Teratoid Rhabdoid Tumour). Their data provides a crucial first framework for the development of clinical trials. Research is ongoing with a second publication already in the works. Funds continue to be needed so that this crucial work can continue.

Dr. Huang supervised several students including first author John Torchia, a PhD candidate at the University of Toronto.  Click here to read the article:
