We are researchers and investigators at sarcoma centers working together with pharmaceutical and biotech companies to achieve breakthroughs in sarcoma – to help improve patient outcomes, and ultimately find a cure.

The SARC organization is set up as a directorship, and the organization’s overall strategy and policy is guided by members of the board. Our scientific platform is established by leaders who are recognized experts in sarcoma research. Within this organizational structure we are positioned to bring together the range of expertise needed to move the science of sarcoma forward to develop new and better treatments for patients with sarcoma.
