Shuwen Biotech Appoint Medical Professor of the University of Chicago to Advisory Board
Dr. Connell, a professor in the Radiation and Cellular Oncology Department of the University of Chicago School of Medicine, is a physician and an active cancer researcher. He has published numerous research papers in leading medical journals, and has received many research awards for his pioneering cancer research.
In 2014, Dr. Connell and his colleagues discovered a multi-gene expression signature and successfully developed an algorithm to calculate a Recombinant Proficiency Score (RPS) that reflects the proficiency of recombination DNA repair pathways in tumor cells and may predict tumor sensitivity to radiation therapy and chemotherapies including DNA-damaging agents and PARP inhibitors.
“We are very excited to have Dr. Connell as an advisor,” stated Jay Z Zhang, Chairman and CEO of Shuwen Biotech. “Dr. Connell’s expertise in oncology and personalized medicine will prove to be invaluable to us as Shuwen continues to expand its pipeline of innovative cancer diagnostics.”
