Study Summary

The Stanford Kids CAMP study aims to evaluate the feasibility of enrolling minority participants in school age children (5-13 years old) in a community summer camp setting along with the efficiency by which each participant's biologic specimens are collected. Using remote monitoring technologies and through partnering with community-based organizations, the investigators hypothesize that an increase in underrepresented minority participation in a clinical trial that is greater than the national average is possible.

Michael Gill holds a Bachelors of Science in Integrated Science and Mathematics from McMaster University. During his degree he devoted considerable time modeling the pharmacodynamics of promising drug candidates. Since then, he has leveraged this knowledge of the investigational new drug ecosystem to help his father navigate clinical trials for multiple myeloma, an experience which prompted him to co-found Power Life Sciences: a company that helps patients access randomized controlled trials.
