We are grateful for the $25,000 directed gift from the Northwest Sarcoma Foundation that facilitates Seattle-Portland collaboration in the genetic and functional characterization of adult bone and soft tissue sarcomas.  This is the second year of this program, which supports collaboration between our laboratory and Dr. Robin Jones at the Seattle Cancer Care Alliance.
