The Neuroblastoma Research Team
> Dr Loretta Lau, Neuroblastoma Research Group Leader
Loretta is a paediatric oncologist who felt limited in her ability to cure children with cancer. She was particularly curious why some of her young patients with neuroblastoma did extremely well, while in other children the cancer was far more aggressive and the cure rate very low. Loretta conducts research into how cancer cells achieve immortality by preserving the length of their telomeres, the structures which protect their DNA.
