Children's Health Dallas
For more than 100 years, Children's Health Dallas's mission has been to make life better for children. Children's Health Dallas is one of the largest and most prestigious pediatric health care providers in the country. With their academic affiliation with UT Southwestern, they are also a leader in life-changing treatments, innovative technology and ground-breaking research.
Last year, Love Your Melon gifted Children's Health Dallas with $50,000 to fund their Cellular and ImmunoTherapeutics Program, a clinical and research program which enables Children's Health to continue delivering cutting-edge cellular therapies and aims to become a leader in the rapidly growing field of gene therapy for treating cancers. Experts in this program are focusing on how the guy microbiome can shape the immune response in pediatric cancer patients. Understanding this can potentially solve some of the most complex challenges in cancer treatment and ultimately make cancer immunotherapy more effective.
