Sarcoma research is a main pillar of the three pronged Rein in Sarcoma mission, with over $1.6 million in research grants awarded since its founding. In the summer of 2016, Rein in Sarcoma authorized a request for research grants from the University of Minnesota. We had five external experts review the eleven proposals received, and their recommendations were presented to the Board in January. These awards are the direct result of the broad and deep support that RIS received from so many of you in 2016. Thank you.
The awarded research grants for 2017 are as follows:
