Fred Hutchinson Cancer Research Center, University of Washington join in national effort to study health impact of toxic substances

by Zarbl, will compare the molecular fingerprints of cells exposed to different doses of environmental agents.

Another important strength of the consortium is the combined Hutchinson Center/UW expertise in bioinformatics and statistics, which will be key in analyzing data that ultimately will contribute to a national microarray gene-expression database. The consortium's bioinformatics core will be co-directed by Steven Self, Ph.D., member of the Hutchinson Center's Public Health Sciences Division; and Roger Bumgarner, Ph.D., director of the UW Center for Expression Arrays and research assistant professor in the Department of Microbiology.

A toxicology core, directed by Terry Kavanagh, Ph.D., associate professor of environmental health at UW, will coordinate the development of standardized methodologies in expression-array analysis to be used across the national consortium's participating universities as well as the NIEHS.

Other academic institutions participating in the NIEHS Toxicogenomics Research Consortium are the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill; Oregon Health and Science University in Portland; Duke University in Durham, N.C.; and the Massachusetts Institute of Technology in Cambridge.

"We know that we can stretch the research dollar by having scientists at NIEHS and grantees at universities work in concert," said Kenneth Olden, Ph.D., director of NIEHS. "But perhaps more important, we know that bringing ideas together in science increases the advances we achieve."
