Columbia Joins Global Consortium to Advance Precision Cancer Medicine
Columbia University has joined Project GENIE, which brings together leading institutions in cancer research and treatment to provide a repository for the largest possible amount of clinical-grade cancer genomic data and clinical outcomes data. At Columbia, GENIE is being led by Drs. Raul Rabadan of systems biology and Richard Carvajal of medicine.
Raul Rabadan Wins Stand Up to Cancer Award for Accelerated Cancer Research
Dr. Rabadan has won a Sharp Innovation Award from Stand Up to Cancer, and with collaborator, Dr. Dan Landau of Weill Cornell, the two investigators will work on a novel sequencing technique and computational method for better understanding immune recognition mechanism in glioblastoma.
Symposium Spotlights Advancements in Translational Cancer Research
The recent Cancer Genomics Symposium featured talks by leading computational biologists, physicists, engineers, mathematicians, and oncologists, and explored important research grounded in cancer genomics and mathematical data analysis.
At the Intersection of Math and Genomics
Introducing the Program for Mathematical Genomics, a new research hub at Columbia where computer scientists, mathematicians, evolutionary biologists and physicists can come together to uncover quantitative techniques to tackle fundamental biomedical problems. The interdisciplinary program aims to advance research in an emerging, rapidly growing field.
It’s All In the Math: New Tool Provides Roadmap for Cell Development
Researchers at Columbia University Medical Center have created a new tool to describe the many possible ways in which a cell may develop. Rooted in the mathematical field of topology, the tool provides a roadmap that offers detailed insight into how stem cells give rise to specialized cells.
