TGen and George Mason University announce precision medicine alliance to benefit patients
Date:5/6/2014

PHOENIX, Ariz. and FAIRFAX, Va. May 6, 2014 The Translational Genomics Research Institute (TGen) and George Mason University today announced the creation of a strategic research alliance to benefit patients with cancer and other life-threatening illnesses.

The TGen-George Mason Molecular Medicine Alliance is a groundbreaking effort in precision medicine, which recommends to clinicians the best medications and treatments based on each patient's molecular profile.

Both institutions are world leaders in exploring the underlying fundamentals of disease by studying genes and proteins. By combining efforts, George Mason and TGen look to develop a more precise research strategy to help people afflicted by cancer and other diseases, while pursuing additional research. The alliance is the first of its kind in the field.

TGen, at the heart of Phoenix's Biomedical Campus, is recognized as a pioneer in studying genomics, or DNA, to uncover the underlying molecular causes of disease. Mason, strategically located outside the nation's capital, has one of the world's most advanced labs for studying proteins: the Center for Applied Proteomics and Molecular Medicine.

The alliance already has submitted applications for more than $12 million in research grants for projects that each institution might not have pursued alone, but are now well positioned to accomplish by combining their complimentary expertise.

"This is a timely and exceptionally forward looking research effort between George Mason University and TGen. The Molecular Medicine Alliance is an opportunity for two highly regarded institutions to integrate their complementary knowledge and human resources to help patients by using state-of-the-art technology to advance new therapeutics options," said Dr. Jeffrey Trent, TGen President and Research Director.

"This is a major achievement for science and health care," said Dr. ngel Cabrera, President of Mason. "By joining
