Children's Hospital is part of the UPMC family.
Some of the many Hematology/Oncology research opportunities available related to sarcomas, including bone tumors and certain soft tissue tumors, are listed below. Select a study to review a brief description and requirements. Parents or guardians of children who might be eligible are encouraged to inquire about enrollment. Contact information is provided at the end of each study.
Please note that Pilot and Phase I studies are the most experimental and should be considered only after other treatments or trials have been attempted without success.
Thank you for exploring these opportunities and helping us to find cures and prevent childhood disease.
