initiative to enable delivery of the highest level of personalized care for cancer patients in a clinical environment," said CTG Chairman and Chief Executive Officer James R. Boldt .

The Center's first sequencing projects represent a three-pronged translational research initiative. RPCI has launched clinical research studies that set out to:

  • Predict on a case-by-case, personalized basis which of the two main types of standard chemotherapy, anthracycline-based or platinum-based, will be most effective in treating a woman's breast cancer, and with fewest adverse side effects;
  • Develop, in collaboration with Western New York Urology Associates, a diagnostic test for superficial bladder cancer, the ninth most common cancer in the U.S. and the most expensive of all cancers in terms of cost to treat; and
  • Engage 600 healthy volunteers representing the ethnic, racial, socioeconomic and geographic diversity of the eight-county Western New York region in an initiative to identify the particular healthcare priorities of this community, aided by a mobile tissue-collection unit that will travel to disparate and underserved areas.
  • In addition, RPCI expects to use the resources of the CPM in planning individualized care for its lung, melanoma and leukemia patients in the near future. 

"The work we're doing now at the CPM will translate into personalized, evidence-based therapies in a matter of months," says CPM Executive Director Carl Morrison , MD, DVM, Clinical Chief of the Department of Pathology & Laboratory Medicine and Director of the Division of Molecular Pathology at RPCI. "Our goal is to bring next-generation sequencing technology to frontline care at Roswell Park with a new portfolio of personal genome assays."

"We now have the infrastructure in place to offer robust sequencing b
