Gene Network Sciences Announces Cancer Collaboration with University of Connecticut Health Center's Neag Comprehensive Cancer Center
Date:6/3/2009

CAMBRIDGE, Mass., June 3 /PRNewswire/ -- Gene Network Sciences, Inc. (GNS) today announced that it has entered into a research collaboration with The University of Connecticut Health Center's Carole and Ray Neag Comprehensive Cancer Center in which the parties will incorporate genetic, genomic and clinical data ("3-D Data") together into computer models of different cancers to be used to identify the best treatments for individual patients and to develop new drug treatments and diagnostics. Financial terms were not disclosed.

GNS and the Neag Comprehensive Cancer Center began their collaboration as a result of a connection made last year between two University of Connecticut alumni from different generations, Dr. Carolyn Runowicz (a graduate of the College of Liberal Arts and Sciences in the 1970s) and Tom Neyarapally (a graduate of the School of Engineering in the 1990s). Runowicz, who served as President of the American Cancer Society from 2005-2006 and is currently Director of the Neag Comprehensive Cancer Center, and Neyarapally identified ovarian cancer as an initial area of focus. Runowicz and Neyarapally are also, together with colleagues Drs. Molly Brewer and Iya Khalil, preparing a scientific publication regarding ovarian cancer treatment and the use of computational modeling capabilities such as GNS's supercomputing-driven REFS(TM) platform to improve treatments and outcomes. The parties are also in the process of assembling a consortium in ovarian cancer with additional cancer centers that have yet to be named.

"With ever-increasing quantities of molecular and genetic data from cancer patients becoming available, we as clinicians are in great need of capabilities to optimally and rapidly utilize this information," said Dr. Runowicz. "We are excited to link up with GNS, which has created a unique supercomputer-driven technology platform to turn this information directly into simulation models,
