European call for research projects

Today research is often funded at a national level or through research networks. When charities fundraise, they are looking for projects on their own and have them reviewed either by an inhouse scientific committee or through an ad hoc peer review process. Some greater calls for projects are organised, but then, again, they are often aimed at national projects.

For children with rhabdomyosarcoma, assessing response to treatment and whether they remain in remission requires regular imaging such as MRI.
