MADISON (WKOW) -- The University of Wisconsin-Madison will have access to a $14.5 million grant for cancer research.
Six institutions will share the money from St. Baldrick's Foundation. According to the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel, the research will focus on two areas.
Immunotherapeutics involves developing treatments that use the body's own immune system to the fight the disease and genomics involves looking at DNA for genetic causes of cancer.
The research areas aim to help children and the institutions will analyze childhood cancer genomes.
The project will start in July. Promising drugs will be tested on mice before they are used on kids.
