Previous Grants:

June 2014: Joshua's Wish presents Undergraduate Research Award to to Joonhyuk Lee, a student at Case Western Reserve University. He will do his research project this summer at Cincinnati Children's Hospital under the supervision of Dr. Dasgupta. Mr. Lee acknowledges that research funding is lacking in the study of DIPG. He is hoping through this grant he will be able to achieve his goals in researching DIPG and as a result add to the overall knowledge of these tumors in the hopes to find a potential cure to this disease.

To date, Joshua's Wish has been able to fund six research grants to undergraduate students to study DIPG. Joshua's Wish will continue to fund undergraduate research so we can "Make the Wish for a Cure a Reality"
