Novel approaches to understanding osteosarcoma

Project Description

This project will enable us to develop better models of the most common type of bone cancer (osteosarcoma). We will use these models to understand how the cancer cells have changed from normal bone cells and if it is possible to use this information to develop new ways to treat this cancer.
