Peter de Blank, MD, a leading pediatric neuro-oncologist and researcher at Angie’s Institute at UH Rainbow Babies & Children’s Hospital, is searching for a cure for neurofibromatosis 1 (NF1), an, inherited neurological disorder that affects 1 in 3,000 children. His work could have a profound impact on children diagnosed with NF1, such as two-year-old Layla, who has a noncancerous tumor behind her eye that will cause loss of vision if untreated.
