Research at the Scientific Centre of Monaco into pediatric cancers has received a major boost thanks to a 100,000€ donation from the Flavien Foundation.
For several years, the ‘Mechanisms of resistance to targeted therapies’ team at the Medical Biology Department of the Scientific Centre of Monaco (CSM) has focused its research on developing effective therapies adapted to pediatric cancers.
Thanks to continued support by the Flavien Foundation, significant advances in research have emerged.
On Monday 7th December, the foundation handed over another major donation – 100,000€ – in the presence of Prince Albert and a host of other Monegasque personalities.
Teams from the Department of Medical Biology presented their work during the event to highlight the importance of research and to thank the Flavien Foundation and the Prince’s Government for their active support.

Delay in the rollout of the Johnson & Johnson vaccine in Europe comes as the EU Commission says it will not renew contracts with the US pharma giant or AstraZeneca over blood clotting worries.
Covid nasal self-tests have been trickling into pharmacies in France since 12th April, but how effective are they?
The European Medicines Agency will list blood clotting as a rare side effect of the AstraZeneca vaccine but maintains that the shot is saving lives and its use should be continued.
