Funds Children Tumors Research
Organization for raising funds for research for children's cancers
MEDICAL RESEARCH Mia Neri passed away August 8, 2014, at 11 years, after a strenuous fight against a malignant brain tumor. Her legacy of courage, dignity and self donation inspired parents, family and friends to establish the Association Mia Neri Foundation, whose primary mission is to raise funds to support medical research within the field of childhood tumors.
These funds will sustain research projects approved by a scientific committee of senior scientists of the Catholic University School of Medicine of Rome, Italy, where Mia was treated to high professional standards during the course of her illness.
The Associazione Mia Neri Foundation is proud to announce the publication of a call for proposals of research projects in the field of pediatric brain tumors to be funded with a 100,000 E grant. We are grateful to our friends and supporters for making this action possible.
The Mia Neri Foundation is proud to announce the publication of two important scientific articles, authored by Dr. Barbara Rivera Polo, a young investigator supported by the Foundation, thanks also to a contribution received by the Cassa di Sovvenzione e Risparmio fra il Personale della Banca d'Italia:
