SARC SPORE meeting

We presented our research project in collaboration with Dr. David Langenau (MGH) at today's SARC clinical trial consortium SPORE meeting - we are grateful for this 2 year pilot project funding.  Differentiation as a therapy for rhabdomyosarcoma? possibly!

Children's Oncology Group Fall Meeting

This meeting was productive.  Our lab presented at the Soft Tissue Sarcoma Chemotherapy Breakout session on "Three novel target-therapy pairs for potential clinical trials within 18 months?", as well as at the CNS session on "Ad Hoc Preclinical Consortia to Support Trial Design".  Both presentations bridged scientific/drug discovery and the potential initiation of clinical trials.
