Incogen Gets $2M from NCI for Cancer Diagnostic Software Development

NEW YORK, April 19 (GenomeWeb News) - Incogen said today that it has received a $2 million Phase II grant from the National Cancer Institute to develop its cancer diagnostic software.

 

The company will work with the Collegeof Williamand Mary and the EasternVirginiaMedicalSchoolon the project.

 

The two-year grant follows on a Phase I grant awarded to Incogen a year ago, which funded the development of a pilot project to analyze proteomics data produced by Ciphergen Biosystems' SELDI platform. In the second phase of the project, Incogen hopes to develop a clinical diagnostic software package for distribution to clinical researchers.

 

EVMS will produce the data for the project, while W&M and Incogen will analyze the data, the company said.
