Pollock Lab

The Sarcoma Research Laboratory is a translational investigative environment focusing on soft tissue sarcoma and related malignancies led by Raphael Pollock, MD, PhD, director of The Ohio State University Comprehensive Cancer Center. The laboratory research agenda is organized around studies of soft tissue sarcoma histologic subtypes. Investigations include:

These investigations are supported by a comprehensive soft tissue tumor acquisition program in collaboration with Hans Iwenofu, MD, of the Department of Pathology and Thomas Scharschmidt, MD, and Joel Mayerson, MD, of the Department of Orthopaedic Surgery. The retrieved tissues are used to create cell lines and cell strains. These tissues are also implanted in vivo to establish small-animal models that support preclinical therapy investigations.
