Dr. Bang Hoang, recipient of 1st Sarcoma Strong/MSTS research grant

It is with great pleasure that we announce Dr. Bang Hoang, from Montefiore Medical Center and Albert Einstein College of Medicine, as the recipient for the 1st Sarcoma Strong/MSTS $100,000 Research Grant.  Dr. Hoang’s work will look at the ability to target microRNA with Flavokawain as Therapy for Osteosarcoma.  We are hopeful that the work Bang’s team can accomplish with this funding for two years will lead to successful NIH grant funding.   It is possible we can see a clinical impact in the next several years.  One person alone could not have made this possible.  It has taken a whole community.  The Sarcoma Community.  As we Unite we are making an impact.  As  we celebrate this accomplishement and milestone for Sarcoma Strong we cannot help to be motivated to do more.  We want to fund more grants.  We were blessed with several outstanding grant applications but our funding limited us to funding one researcher.  The grant review committee has great faith in Dr. Hoang’s ability to put the funding to good use and work towards clinical application for our sarcoma warriors.
