The NCRI Sarcoma Group brings together clinicians, scientists and patients, carers and others affected by cancer (also known as ‘consumers’), amongst many others, to coordinate the development of a strategic portfolio of research within the field of sarcoma. The group works closely with clinical research networks, funders and researchers to develop research to improve outcomes for sarcoma patients.  

The NCRI Sarcoma Group consists of an executive group, chaired by Professor Bernadette Brennanwhich provides oversight of the research landscape and proactively identifies opportunities for the group. The NCRI Sarcoma Group also has several subgroups that develop research in areas of strategic need.

Members are competitively recruited to the executive Group and subgroups twice a year and are advertised on the jobs and opportunities page. If there are not currently any vacancies, you are encouraged to register your interest via email.
