GUMC and Oak Ridge National Labs announce unique research partnership
Date:10/23/2008

and Minetta Liu, MD, in the department of oncology at GUMC is utilizing a membrane developed by ORNL to help further Dr. Liu's work to detect the earliest metastatic spread of cancer tumors using circulating tumor cells (CTC) in patients' blood. The goal is to evaluate the microdevice for CTC capture in blood samples from patients with breast and other epithelial malignancies (such as ovarian cancer) at Georgetown. Being able to enhance the sensitivity of detection of these tumors in a minimally invasive and user-friendly manner could revolutionize the clinical management of cancer patients.

In addition, GUMC and ORNL are continuing to explore new opportunities to expand the collaboration and plan to work together to submit a series of new proposals to agencies such as the NIH in the near future.

"We have just begun this relationship," Federoff says. "We look forward to exploring a variety of scientific areas by combining our complementary research strengths."
