MD Anderson Becomes a GeneGo Center of Excellence Using MetaCore for Oncology Research
Mary E. Edgerton, a pathologist performing cancer research at MD Andersonand a long-term client, says "I have been using MetaCore for many years in myresearch into pathways and networks that control aggressive behavior incancers. I am currently using it to infer networks from analysis of geneexpression array data for pathways in lung, brain, and breast cancer. I alsouse the curated pathways to formulate mathematical models of molecularnetworks that predict tumor behavior using multiscale modeling. Not only do Ifind the product to be very useful, but I also appreciate the responsivenessof the staff at GeneGo to my technical questions and suggestions. "
"MD Anderson is renowned for their pioneering work in oncology. I haveknown some of the MD's there for a while and I admire their dedication totheir patients and to working hard to find cures," said Julie Bryant, GeneGo'sVP of Business development. "We are proud to have them as an institutioncustomer and a Center of Excellence. We have a large development program inthe area of cancer system biology tools supported by NCI and we are glad tosee this work appreciated by some of the best oncology professionals in theworld working at MD Anderson."
