Javed Khan, M.D. is a molecular biologist at the National Cancer Institute (NCI) working on the Pediatric Cancer Genome Project. A focus has been placed on pediatric cancer because the number of mutations leading to cancers in children is much less than in the cancers occuring in adults. The project attempts to sequence the genome of tumors from hundreds of children with cancer to identify the genetic changes from children without cancer. With these genetic changes identified and characterized, clinicians may be able to prescribe appropriate treatments to combat specific cancers.
