Biomarker Discovery, Strategies, Technologies & Validation

Biomarker Discovery & Validation

The companies said their partnership will result in a complete solution for biomarker discovery, optimization, and validation on a number of platforms.

The companies will use Myriad RBM's CustomMAP platform to measure cardiovascular risk biomarkers in patients treated with a Sanofi diabetes drug.

The assay will be designed to predict how pancreatic cancer patients respond to Threshold's investigational drug evofosfamide.

Called Cedars-Sinai Precision Health, the program aims to promote novel technologies and approaches for personalized medicine at the institution.

The researchers will use genomics to address challenges facing Canada's forestry, healthcare, agricultural, and aquacultural industries.
