Drive for a Cause with Perillo BMW

Children’s Research Fund Junior Board has partnered with Perillo BMW for the Drive for a Cause campaign this June, July, and August.

Dr. Ji Heon Paul Lee
The money Perillo BMW raises will be directly supporting the research of Dr. Ji Heon Paul Lee , a third year fellow in the division of Hematology, Oncology, Neuro-Oncology and Stem Cell Transplantation. Dr. Lee’s current research is investigating the role of the gene DYRK1A in leukemia. Clinical trials show that this gene plays a critical role in development of leukemia. Dr. Lee’s goal is to identify the exact role of the gene and to discover more effective drug therapies for children suffering from this disease.
