What is the Decoding Stress Study?

The Decoding Stress Study is a groundbreaking project led by two of PNRI’s internationally renowned geneticists, Dr. Lisa Stubbs and Dr. David Galas . It aims to answer some of the biggest questions about the role of people’s genes in determining how they respond to chronic stress.

Chronic stress is linked to chronic conditions such

Bioinformatics Holds the Promise of Developing Personalized Treatment for Cancer Patients

In May 2016, Pacific Northwest Research Institute (PNRI) and Indivumed GmbH (Indivumed), based in Hamburg, Germany, entered a strategic collaboration led by PNRI’s David Galas, PhD. The collaboration is designed to harness the power of molecular and clinical cancer data for tailoring successful treatments for individual cancer patients.

Indivumed’s global Cancer Database and Biobank contains more than 4.5 million biological data
