Gene Network Sciences to Help Murex Develop Cancer Drugs

NEW YORK, June 2 (GenomeWeb News) - Gene Network Sciences will help Murex Pharmaceuticals co-develop cancer therapeutics, Murex said yesterday.

 

GNS uses computer models to study cancer therapies and Murex will use its technology to create computer-based models to help it identify and validate cancer targets. Murex will then design shRNA-based vaccines that halt cancer growth.

 

GNS scientists will work directly with Murex teams at Murex's research and development facilities in Texas.
