Dr. Dick retains a Canada Research Chair in Stem Cell Biology and is usually a Senior Scientist at University Wellness Network's Princess Margaret Cancer Centre and McEwen Center for Regenerative Medicine. He’s also a Professor in the Department of Molecular Genetics, University of Toronto, and Director of the Tumor Stem Cell Program at the Ontario Institute for Tumor Research. In pre-medical experiments, the research team replicated human colon cancer in mice to determine if particularly targeting the stem cells was clinically relevant. Initial, the researchers determined that the gene BMI-1, implicated in keeping stem cells in other cancers already, is the pivotal regulator of colon cancer stem cells and drives the cycle of self-renewal, proliferation and cell survival.Like its other microarrays, Agilent provides custom made options for the human also, rat and mouse SurePrint G3 Exon products. Custom formats include 8x60K, 4x180K, 2x400K and 1x1M. Like all Agilent microarrays, the SurePrint G3 Exon alternative delivers a wide powerful range to detect low expressors and high expressors to accurately represent the number of expression levels and provide high self-confidence in the results.
