bioAffinity Technologies Joins Early Detection Research Network
SAN ANTONIO, March 01, 2018 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- bioAffinity Technologies, a privately held cancer diagnostics company, today announced it has been approved for membership in the Early Detection Research Network (EDRN), an initiative of the National Cancer Institute (NCI). EDRN brings government, academic and industry leaders together to accelerate the discovery, development and validation of biomarkers for cancer risk and early detection.
“Collaboration with the National Cancer Institute’s Early Detection Research Network is an important step in the development of CyPath© Lung, our non-invasive, early-stage lung cancer test. EDRN also offers valuable resources to advance our promising oncological diagnostics for prostate and bladder cancers,” said Maria Zannes, President and Chief Executive Officer of bioAffinity Technologies. “EDRN and its members share many of our objectives, including expanding our knowledge of the biology of cancer, developing and testing promising technologies for the early detection of cancer, and promoting collaboration to advance the clinical application of tests like CyPath© Lung.”
bioAffinity Technologies’ Executive Vice President Vivienne Rebel, PhD, MD, and Director of Operations Xavier Reveles, MS GC(ASCP)cm, will attend next week’s 10th EDRN Scientific Workshop from March 6-8, 2018, in Bethesda, MD. The workshop will focus on standards and regulatory science, novel technologies for precision detection, imaging, clinical and validation science, alliances and consortia on biomarkers, and non-profit foundations’ support for biomarkers.
