A New Beginning of Drug Development for Childhood Cancer...
Together we will find better cancer treatments for children.
Currently children are being overlooked when it comes to finding new medicines, if this continues it will take 300 years before all childhood cancers have an effective treatment.

Why We Exist
At aPODD we focus on one thing, finding new cures for as many childhood cancers as we can. While some charities spread their funds between research, raising awareness and offering support. We do not.
We want to find new treatments fast. The current regulatory system and costs involved in developing new drugs make it unworkable as a permanent solution. Which is why at aPODD our research strategy is currently focused on drug repurposing.
Join us in our goal to find new drugs to treat children with cancer. Any donation, big or small, will go a long way to helping us find kinder and better treatments for children. Our innovative approach will lead to more treatments becoming available for children.
Work With Us
Do you want to challenge the world of medical research and do something different? If so we are looking for visionaries to work with us. The lack of new innovative drugs to treat children with cancer will not be solved by just putting more money into basic science.
ACCELERATING BETTER & KINDER TREATMENTS FOR CHILDREN WITH CANCER.
CHALLENGE THE STATUS-QUO
Dedicated to Change.
Our mission is to find better and kinder treatments for children with cancer as quickly as possible. We believe every child who beats cancer should be able to fulfil their potential without the worry of falling ill again.
Currently two thirds of children who survive childhood cancer will experience long term health complications, including hearing loss, heart disease, sight loss and even secondary cancer, caused by the toxicity of the current treatments.
