Las Madrinas Endowment for Molecular Pathology

The Center for Personalized Medicine (CPM) at Children’s Hospital Los Angeles is committed to utilizing genetic information to discover new ways to prevent, diagnose and treat disease in individuals. Propelling the CPM’s goals is the Las Madrinas Endowment for Molecular Pathology, which supports the work of the Center’s founding director, Timothy Triche, MD, PhD. Funds generated from the endowment are allocated to enable the CPM team to clinically validate new assays for childhood cancer using patient samples and data analysis. The Endowment also provides funds to support work to analyze data yielding new information that can help predict the diagnosis, prognosis and optimal therapy for children with cancer. Children’s Hospital Los Angeles thanks Las Madrinas for “taking the lead and making an investment in this exciting field of medicine through the establishment of the Las Madrinas Endowment for Molecular Pathology.”
