Summer at Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia is definitely off to a sweet start: We kick off this week’s research roundup with a new way of thinking about honey (thanks to novel findings from our ear, nose, and throat specialists) and congratulate the Cancer Center at CHOP on yet another successful day of serving up lemonade to support the Alex’s Lemonade Stand Foundation (ALSF). On top of that, we cover research updates from our Mitochondrial Medicine Frontier Program and the Center for Autism Research (CAR), and share a special new award for Stephan Grupp, MD, PhD, director of the Cancer Immunotherapy Program.
