Waters Recognizes Albert J. Fornace Laboratory at Georgetown University Medical Center as a Center of Innovation
Date:7/7/2011

anked among the top 1% of the most cited life science researchers (http://www.isihighlycited.com). His laboratory's research is focused on learning what happens to cells when they are stressed or injured by toxic agents such as ionization radiation, and which underlying processes cause cancer and other disorders. Professor Fornace directs a variety of funded projects for stress-signaling studies, which include major metabolomics components. One such study involves a $5 million award establishing a NASA Specialized Center of Research to study the risk of gastrointestinal cancer by space radiation; this study will investigate some of the health risks of astronauts by space radiation. Prof. Fornace is the director of this Center, and Jerry Shay, PhD, at UT Southwestern is co-director.

Professor Fornace's team is also active in the field of metabolomics, studying the metabolites or small molecules produced by the human body in response to an outside influence such as a drug, a disease like cancer, or radiation. New technology is enabling scientists to map these subtle changes in body chemistry over time in ways never before possible. These biomarkers may one day help scientists better understand the environmental factors that cause certain diseases.

"The field of metabolomics has really taken off in the last six years or so, and a lot of the credit goes to Waters with its pioneering Q-Tof™ technology," said Prof. Fornace. "It's a demanding area of science, and since quadrupole time-of-flight mass spectrometry came on line, there has been an exponential increase in interest in metabolomics and the number of publications in this field. We are very pleased Waters has taken an interest in our research."
