Hope Through Hollis Fund at TGen supports innovative childhood brain cancer research

(The Translational Genomics Research Institute) In an effort to 'move the needle' toward improved treatments for a rare form of childhood brain cancer known as DIPG, Shane and Shawnee Doherty have donated $30,000 in memory of their 7-year-old son, Hollis, to support research at TGen. Initially, the Hope Through Hollis Fund at TGen will enable a team led by TGen Deputy Director Dr. Michael Berens to conduct a full genomic study of the DIPG tumor that took the life of Hollis.
