Harper Cancer Research Lab Feature

A unique partnership initiated by the Harper Cancer Research Institute and consisting of clinical partners from The Medical Foundation (TMF), Saint Joseph Regional Medical Center (SJRMC) and Beacon Health System (BHSMH) will provide an individualized “molecular portrait” to SJRMC and BHSMH cancer patients.

An $851,910 project with funding from the Walther Cancer Foundation, TMF, SJRMC, Beacon and the Harper Institute will enable the acquisition of a Sequenom MassARRAY instrument for clinical testing, translational research and biobanking. The Sequenom device will be used by local oncologists at SJRMC and BHSMH and pathologists at TMF, in collaboration with Harper Institute researchers, to offer mutational profiling to cancer patients.
