Summary

The purpose of this project is to determine the role of fibroblasts in sarcoma metastasis. Fibroblasts are cells that are major component of the supporting and connecting structures of the body. Precursors to these tissue fibroblasts are found in our bone marrow and in our circulating blood. The study doctor will grow fibroblasts from blood samples in culture and determine the role that they play in promoting tumor cell invasion and metastasis.
