[Source: The Arizona Republic] - A Phoenix medical-research group has landed two multimillion-dollar contracts that give it a key role in an ambitious U.S. project aimed at solving the genetic riddle of common forms of cancer.
In a development that underscores Arizona's leading role in medical research, the International Genomics Consortium was awarded nearly $59 million to collect, process and store tumor samples for the federal Cancer Genome Atlas project.
The contracts also are a reflection of Arizona's efforts to generate high-paying research jobs in the biosciences, local industry experts say.
