Cancer Research at Children’s Gets Boost From Hyundai Grant

Dr. James Amatruda is studying the causes of cancer in one of the nation’s largest zebrafish aquariums at UT Southwestern Medical Center. Amatruda got a boost last week when Hyundai Hope On Wheels awarded a $250,000 grant to the Children’s Medical Center Foundation to support his work. As a Hyundai Scholar, Amatruda will use the funds to study rhabdomyosarcoma, a pediatric cancer of the muscle and soft tissue.
