June 2012

HOUSTON—The U.S. Department of Defense (DOD) has awarded researchers from the Lester and Sue Smith Breast Center at Baylor College of Medicine (BCM) two Department of Defense Breast Cancer Research Program awards to fund the study of therapeutic targets based on the genomic changes that fuel tumor formation. The awards for the partnering principal investigators total $781,455 and were given to BCM young investigator Dr. Xiaosong Wang, assistant professor in the Smith Breast Center, and Dr. Rachel Schiff, associate professor in the Smith Breast Center. Along with publicly available datasets, Wang and his team will use a novel bioinformatics tool—developed by Wang—to analyze the reams of data produced by a human tumor genome sequence, and to identify the operations of genetic changes.
