The goal of the research is to one day be better able to predict the response of patients to various cancer therapies based on their unique genetic profile using a combination of metabolomics, proteomics, transcriptomics, and genomics information and an advanced bioinformatics platform.
In remarks made at the ceremony, Robert Clarke, PhD, DSc, Dean of Research and a Principal Investigator at Georgetown Lombardi, said, "To receive this designation from Waters is a wonderful badge of honor for our institution. We intend to use the facilities Waters has made available to us as heavily as we possibly can."
