Reimand Lab Contributes to Large-Scale International Cancer Genome Project
MBP scientist Dr. Jüri Reimand and his OICR research team, including MBP graduate student Helen Zhu and MBP alumna Keren Isaev, have contributed to a massive research collaboration project called the ‘Pan-Cancer Analysis of Whole Genome’ (PCAWG), aimed at ‘discovering causes of previously unexplained cancers, pinpointing cancer-causing events and zeroing in on mechanisms of development’. As a part of this immense international collaboration of 1300 researchers, a collection of 23 PCAWG papers were released in Nature and related journals this week. The Reimand lab co-led two papers within this collection on pathway analysis of mutations and they were also deeply involved in a cancer driver discovery collaboration.
