Creating new research techniques and adapting proven ones for a pediatric population are hallmarks of the Columbia University Pediatric Orthopedic Research Group. The "quality of life" work performed by this Research Group is internationally recognized. Your donation to Pediatric Orthopedic Research can impact the lives of patients today, and thousands of children in the future.

Your contribution will

  • Purchase new instrumentation and access to databases
  • Allow for new treatment protocols to be monitored through on-going clinical care
  • Support the team of physicians, statisticians and medical writers needed to collect and analyze new data, interview patients, write reports and share results
  • Offer internships to promising young researchers
    Your donation can ensure that this research continues.

We thank you for your generous support.

Under the direction of Francis Y. Lee, M.D., The Center for Orthopaedic Research (COR) advances novel concepts through translational studies that bridge basic science and clinical practice to ultimately advance patient care. Our research efforts have been validated by several prestigious awards, including two National Institutes of Health R01 grants. As an orthopaedic oncologist, Dr. Lee is hoping to raise awareness and funding for musculoskeletal cancer research.

  • Cancers involving the bone and muscle are not common and as a result have not drawn much public attention.
  • Musculoskeletal tumors account for 15% of all pediatric cancers and often have a poor prognosis.
  • Metastatic bone cancers arise from breast, prostate, lung, kidney and thyroid cancers, and can result in severe pain and fractures.
  • Some musculoskeletal tumors are resistant to radiation and chemotherapy.

Your gift will aid our research efforts to target cancer cells at the molecular level to improve patient outcomes for children and adults faced with musculoskeletal cancer.

We thank you for your generous support.
