A core value of SARC is to foster the development of new and innovative research by supporting the ideas and career paths of individuals dedicated to sarcoma research and investigation.


Generally acknowledged as among SARC’s “Crown Jewels,” the Career Development Program represents an essential and critical investment in scientific talent to advance research, an especially acute need for an uncommon cancer with limited career paths.

The Catalyst Award provides recipients with financial support for small-scale sarcoma research projects as well as monthly expert coaching sessions. Keila E. Torres, MD, PhD, MBA, FACS is founder and leader of the program, which is co-led by SARC’s Chief Scientific Officer, Jonathan Fletcher, MD.
