Dr. Maris investigates the molecular and genetic mechanisms contributing to the development and progression of neuroblastoma, a common childhood cancer. He also aims to develop new molecular diagnostic tests and less toxic, targeted therapies to treat relapsed or refractory neuroblastoma, including a major effort in immunotherapy discovery and development.
Dr. Mossé's research goal is to improve cure rates for the childhood cancer neuroblastoma by discovering the genetic basis of the disease and translating rational therapeutic opportunities to the clinic. She studies the contribution of DNA sequence variations and activation mutations of anaplastic lymphoma kinase (ALK) genes on the development and progression of both inherited and acquired forms of neuroblastoma.
