Brief description Inherited genetic risk is important in cancers that affect the young. The International Sarcoma Kindred Study (ISKS) is the world's first prospective study aiming to better understand how sarcomas can be inherited in families, and the genes that cause sarcomas. The ISKS is a multinational study led from Australia, with partners in the US, Europe and India, and aims to recruit over 3000 families affected by sarcoma.
