UT Health Sciences Center to Use GenoLogics' Informatics System

NEW YORK (GenomeWeb News) – The University of Texas Health Sciences Center – Houston will use GenoLogics’ informatics system for its clinical and translational research efforts, the Victoria, British Columbia-based firm said today.
UTHSC is currently conducting research with the University of Texas MD Anderson Cancer Center and the Memorial Hermann Hospital System under the newly formed Center for Clinical and Translational Sciences. GenoLogics said that its platform would enable the partners to “bring disparate data together and support the complex workflows of organizations conducting translational research outcomes.”
Peter Davies, executive vice president of research for UTHSC, said in a statement that the center chose GenoLogics’ platform because it can “effectively integrate our omics data and healthcare information into a common platform across multiple facilities and collaborators.”
