Techniques for Oligonucleotide Analysis
In this article, we discuss the current techniques that are available for oligonucleotide analysis.
Repurposing and Combining Drugs – An Effective Cancer Treatment Strategy
Dr Robert Nagourney is having success investigating whether a unique combination of existing and approved cancer drugs might be more effective compared to “off-the-shelf” treatments. Technology Networks recently had the pleasure of speaking with Nagourney to learn more about his work focused on repurposing drugs. He discusses the challenges and benefits of exploring new uses for drugs that are outside the scope of their original indication.
Personalized Medicine Model Aiming To Improve Diagnosis and Treatment of Chronic Diseases
To learn more about the PANDIS model, its aims, and how it can be used to help diagnose and treat patients suffering from a range of conditions spanning from cancers to “mystery chronic diseases”, Technology Networks spoke with PANDIS’s founders, Professor Gilles Guillemin and Catherine Stace.
Without Scalability, CRISPR Will Not Realize Its Promise
CRISPR has been a challenge to implement due to a range of limitations. As a community, we must set aside our excitement to take a clear-eyed look at the hurdles that need to be overcome before CRISPR can achieve the potential we believe it has.
