IOWA CITY, Iowa - At a ceremony Friday, University of Iowa officials named a newly renovated research lab after the UI Dance Marathon.

The Dance Marathon Pediatric Cancer and Blood Disorders Research Laboratories are now ready to conduct modern experimentation and will soon help lead the way in pediatric cancer research, officials said.

"This is where researchers are going to be able to congregate, share their ideas, and hopefully move the progress forward in diagnosing and potentially curing pediatric cancers," Doctor Tom Scholz of the University of Iowa said.

The laboratories is named in recognition of UI Dance Marathon's $1 million donation to the UI Children's Hospital. The organization made a pledge of $750,000 for renovation of the labs, and $250,000 to create a research fund for pediatric cancer and blood disorders.
