In 1991 the National Multiple Sclerosis Society, through its peer-review committee selected one project, "Genomic search for susceptibility genes in multiple sclerosis," as having the most promising combination of factors needed for success: the scientific expertise necessary to find and identify the genes, and access to a large number of families in which several members have accurately diagnosed, well-documented multiple sclerosis.
Gene Logic is leading the transformation of pharmaceutical research and development with its extensive gene expression databases, pioneering efforts in toxicogenomics, sophisticated bioinformatics expertise, specialty nonclinical services testing capabilities and cutting edge technology program for drug repositioning.
