About This Project

Sarcomas are life-threatening, often untreatable cancers that disproportionately affect dogs and children. We found a set of genes that we think are involved in sarcoma aggressiveness. Now, we want to test whether these genes can be manipulated to halt sarcoma cells from dividing. With your help, we can start to understand how sarcomas grow. If we understand how they grow, we can create more effective treatments for both dogs and humans.

Blast off!
