Agilent Technologies’ (Santa Clara, California) Agilent Foundation announced a collaboration to support leukemia research at Professor Trey Ideker’s laboratory at the University of Californi, San Diego. The laboratory is investigating the relationships between genetic variations and proteins in the search for better methods of analyzing the disease. The collaboration includes scientific and financial support. According to Agilent scientist Allan Kuchinsky, the Ideker laboratory will “explore a promising new approach for recognizing the mechanism that triggers leukemia using multiple scientific disciplines.” Ideker noted that the gift “will allow us to develop a system for analyzing proteomics data to map pathways, and for finding protein-network biomarkers of cancer.” Ideker is also the recipient of the 2009 Overton Prize, which is awarded each year to an early-to-mid-career scientist making a significant contribution to the field of computational biology. Agilent and the Agilent Foundation support research in genomics, proteomics, metabolomics, and informatics.
