The deal with WSU is the latest in a string of collaborations initiated by Arrayit to jumpstart the diagnostics subsidiary it founded earlier this year. Arrayit believes such a test could enable clinicians to screen for early-stage ovarian cancer in asymptomatic women.

Arrayit will use the biomarkers to develop and commercialize a microarray-based diagnostic test for early-stage ovarian cancer in women who are not yet symptomatic.

A phylogenomic comparison of more than a dozen vertebrate genomes suggests similar brain-related genes have undergone adaptive evolution in the ancestors of humans and elephants.

Wayne State will use a $6.3 million NIH grant to study Charcot-Marie-Tooth genetics and pursue treatments.

With a $2.7 million grant, the genetics and imaging studies will pursue genes linked to OCD.

The funding will support a new ABI Qtrap and genetics and genomics studies of disease and organ growth.

WSU and the Michigan Technology and Research Institute are seeking funding to form a company to shepherd to clinical trials WSU's first candidate, a triple uptake inhibitor for treating depression. They eventually hope to attract a pharma partner for further development.
