Children's Memorial Research Center, Chicago Becomes a Member of GeneGo's MetaMiner Stem Cell Partnership Program
Date:4/14/2009

ST. JOSEPH, Mich., April 14 /PRNewswire/ -- GeneGo, Inc., the leading systems biology tools company, announced today that Professor Marcelo Bento Soares of Children's Memorial Research Center has joined the MetaMiner Stem Cell Partnership Program. The goal of the program is to develop a series of blueprint pathway maps for adult, embryonic, fetal, fibroblasts, hematopoietic, mesenchymal, multipotent, neoplastic, pluripotent and totipotent stem cells.

"We feel that it is important to support such an initiative as there is a lot of stem cell information in the literature but no one has brought it all together in a set of comprehensive pathway maps," said Professor Marcelo Bento Soares, Director, Cancer Biology and Epigenomics Program. "This initiative will allow researchers to have more of a global perspective and allows newcomers to the field to get up to speed quickly."

"We had our kick off meeting last month and it went very well; we have a lot of other companies and academic groups that want to join this important project as this will be the first stem cell pathway platform for researchers to advance science. Stem cell research is attracting a lot of attention at the moment," said Julie Bryant, GeneGo's VP of Business Development. "We have a lot of experience in building pathway maps and we plan to have 10 types of stem cell drug centric pathway maps completed in 24 months."
