Kristy Weber Research Program

Led by Kristy L. Weber, MD, the Penn Sarcoma program has developed a collaborative basic/translational research program between Penn Medicine, The Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia, and Penn Vet. This team is focused on developing new approaches to diagnosing and treating pediatric and adult bone and soft tissue tumors including Ewing sarcoma and osteosarcoma. The ultimate goal of the research is to develop better therapies, improve cure rates and minimize treatment toxicities for patients with malignant bone and soft tissue tumors.
