Moving the field, One cell line at a time

An interesting idea of the Chordoma Foundation is to create a $10,000 prize for new chordoma cell lines.  Not sure what chordoma is?  It wouldn't be surprising... this is a very rare cancer of the cranial base and spinal column.  Few cell lines or tissue resources existed before the Chordoma Foundation initiatives.  Now, though, a great deal is known and the path towards treatment is ever closer.
