Stojdl Lab members Katelynn, Stephanie and Kris went along to the annual Hair Donation Ottawa event to talk about our oncolytic virus research. Some of the funds raised by this great local charity will fund our research through the CHEO Foundation. We were also joined on the day by Jane Johnson, author of Kimmie's Rainbow of Hope cookbook, the proceeds of which support neuroblastoma research at the CHEO hospital in Ottawa, and Sick Kids hospital in Toronto.
Three students from CHEO's Apoptosis Research Centre, including our very own Katelynn Rowe (at right), won prizes at the 2014 uOttawa BMI Poster Day. Katelynn won second place in the Microbiology and Immunology category for her poster entitled, "Validating transgenic Farmington viruses for the treatment of glioblastoma multiforme". You can see the full list of winners here.
Our brilliant supporters, Hair Donation Ottawa, presented us with a whopping $93,000 to fund cancer research in our own lab at the Children's Hospital of Eastern Ontario Research Institute, and in Dr. John Bell's lab at the Ottawa Hospital. Many thanks go to everyone who donated their hair, time and money to support the development of our exciting new cancer treatments.
