Agilent Microarray Incentive Program Awards Top Entries
Collaborating with Agilent Technologies, ICBR has provided two investigators with Agilent reagents and supplies, along with services through the Genomics core laboratory at no cost. This was made possible through the Agilent Microarray Incentive Program. The reagents, supplies, and service provided to each recipient are valued at $5,000 and are possible via the ongoing relationship with Agilent to provide top-of-the-line technology for analyzing gene expression.
Recipients are Xin Qi, Ph.D., Assistant Professor, Department of Medicinal Chemistry, College of Pharmacy and Joshi Sunil, postdoctoral student in the Pathology Immunology laboratory, working with Drs. Saeed Khan and Ammon Peck.
Xin’s study focuses on the identification of biomarkers to target breast cancer through peptoid library screening and microarray technology. Sunil’s project is a transcriptional study on the effect of spironolactone on the NADPH Oxidase system.
In addition to microarray technology, the ICBR offers other gene expression services including miRNA arrays, SOLiD SAGE barcoding, and RNA-Seq libraries.
