Sarcomas comprise a highly heterogeneous group of mesenchymal tumors that represent less than 2% of all cancers. Outcome of patients with advanced disease remains poor with the exception of few genetically well-defined subtypes, such as GIST. For many sarcomas few and poorly characterized cell lines / PDX models or no models at all are publicly available for translational research. The HUSARC website aims to serve as a central information hub to  collect information on all cell lines and PDX models, both publicly available and those available through cooperation with researchers. 


The HUSARC project is part of the FORTRESS (FORum For Translational REsearch in SarcomaS) initiative. FORTRESS is an academic, non-for-profit  scientific meeting, with a focus of fostering collaborative translational sarcoma research. @fortressmeeting
