SSRF Breakthrough Grant USD 50,000

SPORE 2017-2021

Project description / Current Awarded Breakthrough Grant

The Synovial Sarcoma Research Foundation is focused on initiating and supporting high-quality basic and translational research in synovial sarcoma. This is one of the current projects that were awarded a “SSRF Breakthrough Grant”:

SARC Sarcoma Specialized Program of Research Excellence (SPORE)

September 2017 - September 2021 USA

We enthusiastically confirm that the Synovial Sarcoma Research Foundation will contribute $10,000 annually ($50,000 over the 5-year period) to support developmental project and career developmental awards described in the SARC Sarcoma SPORE application.

It gives us great pleasure to have the opportunity to state the commitment of the Synovial Sarcoma Research Foundation to support the competitive renewal of the SARC Sarcoma Specialized Program of Research Excellence (SPORE), created by Raphael Pollock and Denise Reinke as Principal Investigators. 

The contribution of the Synovial Sarcoma Research Foundation will be used specifically to fund the continuation of the SPORE commitment to new therapies for Synovial Sarcoma. We hope our commitment will be a helpful part in continuing the particular commitment to new therapies for Synovial Sarcoma patients.

The Synovial Sarcoma Research Foundation is fully committed to support the translational research, and particularly the Developmental Research Projects and Career Enhancement Programs, in the SARC Sarcoma SPORE. We feel that this SPORE program provides an unprecedented opportunity to coordinate and accelerate translational research efforts at national sarcoma centers of excellence and within the intramural NCI program. We are particularly enthused by the core commitment in the SPORE towards new biologically-rational clinical trials in sarcoma, and by your efforts to determine why patients on these trials do or don’t respond to the new therapies. We are also impressed by the equal attention to adult and pediatric patients, in this SPORE.
