Making Changes Through Impactful Research

Research Funding Initiatives

Since March 22, 2020, in response to COVID-19, when New York State implemented its PAUSE order and closed our headquarters, over 2,000 children across the United States have been diagnosed with childhood cancer, while many others are likely going undiagnosed or not able to access care. Children and families need hope in the form of continued funding for the most promising childhood cancer research. Please join with us today in helping to ensure that there is hope.

The Aqueduct Project

This year, Max Cure’s brain cancer research funding is focused upon supporting the efforts of Elias Sayour, MD., Ph.D, Assistant Professor of Neurosurgery, and Pediatrics, and Principal Investigator of the RNA Engineering Laboratory within the Preston A. Wells, Jr. Center for Brain Tumor Therapy and UF Brain Tumor Immunotherapy Program. Dr. Sayour’s innovative work involves the development of a nanoparticle vaccine platform for the delivery of immunotherapies targeting malignant gliomas. His initial testing results in treating companion dogs (pets) with spontaneous (non-research induced) brain tumors has been remarkable. Malignant gliomas in dogs are extremely similar to those in humans. Max Cure is seeking to assist Dr. Sayour’s efforts at conducting clinical trials using the vaccine therapy platform to treat adults and children with the deadliest forms of brain cancer. Dr. Sayour’s efforts represent the potential for the creation of a vaccine platform that may for the first time effectively change some of the tragic statistics for children diagnosed with aggressive brain cancer.
