NCI Funds 24 DNA Microarray Laboratories Nationwide

BETHESDA, Md—Twenty-four cancer research centers in the United States will receive a total of $4.1 million from the National Cancer Institute to purchase the necessary equipment to establish DNA microarray facilities. The new and technically challenging research tool enables scientists to assess expression levels of a large subset of the human genes in a cell or tissue.

The NCI intends for the DNA microarray laboratories to provide technical support to cancer researchers and to make the technology widely available so that it is rapidly applied to investigating a broad range of critical problems in cancer research.
