Dr. Mitchell Cairo is the Director of The Pediatric Cancer Research Foundation Laboratory at Maria Fareri Children’s Hospital at New York Medical College.  His team is focused on six overarching areas of research. These state-of-the-art research initiatives include:

  1. Cancer genetics and treatment of childhood and adolescent hematological malignancies and solid tumors
  2. Genetically re-engineering immune cells to enhance targeted adoptive cellular cancer immunotherapy
  3. Tumor immunology and identifying targets for humoral targeted immunotherapy
  4. Stem cell biology, cancer stem cells, and regenerative therapy
  5. Developing targeted therapy for childhood, adolescent and young adult hematological malignancies and solid tumors and brain tumors
  6. Translational therapeutic consortiums for childhood and adolescent cancer therapy

Dr. Cairo is indebted to PCRF’s Board of Directors, Advisory Board Members, officers and volunteers for their generous support of the aforementioned pediatric cancer research programs. This year 2020 marks the 38th year of sustained and continuous support of our research mission on children and adolescents with cancer. Over this long-standing partnership, pediatric cancer survival rates have improved significantly for certain types of cancers from 20% to 90%!
