A team led by Broad researchers used a new method to systematically test genes for their possible involvement in drug resistance in melanoma. Among the findings was a surprising suspect: a biological pathway typically involved in healthy melanocyte skin cell development. Read this news story to learn more.

This week, The American Society of Human Genetics Annual Meeting, the world’s largest gathering of human genetic professionals, is here in Boston. The Broad's Genomics Platform will be at the meeting all week to share unique capabilities and products. If you are in attendance, please stop by booth 323 to say hello. You can also find out more about what we offer and how to work with the Genomics Platform on our website.
The Broad Institute's Genomics Platform brings together over 20 years of experience in the management of advanced technologies, applications development, data management, and high-throughput processes relating to sample handling, genotyping, gene expression, and genome sequencing.

Broad founding director Eric Lander recently received the Harvey Prize in Human Health from Technion-Israel Institute of Technology. As part of his acceptance, Lander gave a fascinating two-part lecture entitled ‘Secrets of the Human Genome.’ Check it out on Technion’s YouTube channel.

The Broad community extends a warm “thank you!” to Eli and Edythe Broad who today announced a gift to the institute that will help launch a new decade of transformative research and help us bring our major discoveries to bear on the future of medicine. Please join us in thanking them for their support! 
American philanthropists and entrepreneurs Eli and Edythe Broad announced today they are investing an additional $100 million into the Broad Institute to launch a new decade of transformative work to harness recent biomedical discoveries to benefit patients.

Building on the enormous success of the first phase of SIGMA, the Broad Institute today announced that the Carlos Slim Foundation has made an additional contribution of $74M to launch the second phase (SIGMA 2) of this major biomedical partnership aimed at harnessing genomic medicine for the benefit of Latin America and the world. SIGMA 2 aims to develop new biomedical approaches to some of the most crucial problems in public health, including cancer, type 2 diabetes, and kidney disease.

Broad scientists led the development of a cell culture model that mingles leukemia stem cells with stromal cells, mimicking AML's niche in the bone marrow. The system enabled a high-throughput screen, which uncovered a dozen inhibitors of leukemia cells, including statins. The work offers a fresh approach to hunting for new classes of cancer stem cell-directed therapies.

For the first time, a team of scientists from the Broad Institute, Dana-Farber Cancer Institute, and Weill Cornell Medical Center has revealed the “cellular archeology” of prostate cancer. Using a computational model, the team tracked how mutations accumulated in 55 prostate cancer tumors, and the results were surprising. Read all about it on the Broadminded blog.
