Dr. Park plans to use this year's endowment distributions for travel to a conference: the international Advances in Neuroblastoma Research meeting. The meeting will take place in June, 2010 in Stockholm, Sweden. Dr. Park will participate in the exchange of information among worldwide investigators who are studying neuroblastoma biology, diagnosis, prognosis, and therapy. Dr. Park will be able to share data with cancer investigators who are working at other institutions, and then bring what she learns back to Seattle Children's Hospital, where she will continue her research, and her work as an attending physician.
