Prostate Management Diagnostics, Inc. Announces Series A Financing
Led by Dr. Elaine Mardis, the Robert E. and Louise F. Dunn Distinguished Professor of Medicine and Co-Director of The Genome Institute, and Dr. Christopher Maher, Assistant Professor of Medicine and Assistant Director at The Genome Institute, PMDI strives to create new tests to identify and stratify patients at risk for and diagnosed with prostate cancer. Prostate cancer is one of the most common forms of malignancy diagnosed in men, with the vast majority receiving aggressive, but often unnecessary, treatment that frequently leads to debilitating side effects.
Christopher Maher receives a Susan G. Komen Career Catalyst Award
This award focuses on investigating the mechanism of resistance to hormone therapy, particularly with regard to the potential impact of a newly identified class of genes called long intergenic non-coding RNAs (lncRNAs), by studying patients enrolled in two aromatase inhibitor clinical trials.
