SLAY SARCOMA Research Initiative FUNDED RESEARCH AT
PENN MEDICINE’S Abramson Cancer Center

“Over the last four years, Dr. Robert Giuntoli has been able to develop a productive, collaborative relationship with several individuals at Penn Medicine including Dr. Katherine Nathanson, Dr. Jennifer Morrissette and Dr. Fiona Simpkins. The team of investigators has focused specifically on uterine leiomyosarcoma and additional funding from the Slay Sarcoma Research Initiative will allow them to continue to pursue their goal of developing novel, investigator-initiated clinical trials for women with this disease.”
