Gene Network Sciences Announces Brain Cancer Collaboration With M.D. Anderson
Date:4/14/2009

nical 3-D Data into computer models which link genetic alterations to changes in gene expression to progression-free patient survival times. This computer model, developed by using the REFS(TM) platform, is expected to unravel the complex genetic circuitry underlying glioblastoma and reveal novel drug targets and markers of response. These targets and markers may be used to identify the optimal single or combination drug therapy for a given patient's genetic alteration profile. The parties will utilize M.D. Anderson's clinical expertise to validate the discoveries and will work with strategic partners to make drugs and diagnostics stemming from these discoveries available to patients.

"GNS is excited to be working with one of the world's foremost research and clinical care institutions to rapidly translate lab bench research into bedside results," said Colin Hill, CEO of GNS. "Our collaborative work with M.D. Anderson is one of the first examples of applying next-generation machine-learning software and supercomputers to begin to realize the promise of personalized medicine."

About Gene Network Sciences

Gene Network Sciences (http://www.gnsbiotech.com/) is a leader in biosimulation with its ability to derive molecular mechanisms of drugs and diseases directly from molecular profiling and clinical data. Based in Cambridge, Massachusetts, and Ithaca, New York, GNS uses its REFS(TM) technology in pharmaceutical and clinical settings to rapidly turn combinations of genetic, genomic, and clinical measurements into models of disease progression and drug response. These models are then simulated to discover both new targets for drug intervention and genetic markers of drug response that allow patients who will respond to a given drug treatment to be matched to a particular clinical trial. By discovering how and why specific sets of genes and drug candidates impact huma
