Partnering for Progress
Your osteosarcoma science fund with our support and infrastructure
By establishing an osteosarcoma science fund at the Osteosarcoma Institute, you can select the expertly-vetted research study or clinical trial that we have committed to fund and to which you would like to direct your fund. The OSI’s funding partnerships give osteosarcoma families a seat at the table next to expert physicians and research scientists who can interpret and guide them through the complex process of research funding. This opportunity allows families impacted by osteosarcoma to tangibly track a specific research project aiming for progress against the disease. Your name, or the name of your loved one, will be associated with the research project of your choice once the target goal has been met!
Each Fall the OSI opens a grant cycle seeking proposals for the most innovative and breakthrough osteosarcoma research.
Our review committees, consisting of some of the world’s leading cancer scientists, osteosarcoma physicians, and researchers, rigorously review the proposals and select the most promising projects.
The OSI’s Executive Committee, led by Dr. Lee Helman, presents the selected awardees to the osteosarcoma science fund holders in a 1:1 meeting.
The fund holders select their study and receive a 1:1 presentation from the principal investigator. From there, every six months the OSI provides a detailed progress report on the study’s findings.
