NCI Grants to Fund Biomolecular Cancer Detection | GenomeWeb

NEW YORK (GenomeWeb News) – The National Cancer Institute will fund studies that develop high-throughput methods to discover DNA from tumors and exfoliated cells in human fluids with up to $275,000 over two years.

The goal of the "Exfoliated Cells and Circulating DNA in Cancer Detection and Diagnosis" grant is to develop new enrichment methods to detect very low levels of materials from tumors such as DNA and cells in body fluids such as sputum.
