Sarcoma Research Training Day

The Royal Orthopaedic Hospital’s Research and Development Team is holding a Sarcoma Research Training Day in conjunction with the Bone Cancer Research Trust.

Taking place at the Royal Orthopaedic Hospital (ROH) Knowledge Hub 17th January, the event will cover the latest in sarcoma research and include discussions on ROH’s pioneering role in the field. The research training day will also provide an update on the important role of our Research Team in our understanding and treatment of sarcomas here at ROH.

The Bone Cancer Research Trust will be on hand to provide specialist training on early identification of sarcomas and training in different types of primary bone sarcoma. Experts from across ROH will also be discussing the clinical landscape and need for further research in this space.

Researchers from the ROH will also be sharing updates on some of the groundbreaking studies taking place right here in Birmingham, such as multifunctional biomaterials for bone cancer therapy by Dr Lucas Souza and new therapies for chondrosarcomas (a bone cancer that develops in the cartilage cells) by Dr Sally Fletcher.

The event is funded by the Royal Orthopaedic Charity.
