“Collaboration Epitomized: Kolabtree announces the Pilot Project Program
As the knowledge economy grows stronger, it’s imperative that various stakeholders, including academic researchers, industry scientists, and businesses, work closely to solve tricky problems that span disciplines and to bring products to market that leverage the latest scientific developments. With this mission, Kolabtree offers a platform to provide on-demand access to PhD-qualified experts for research and business projects.
Our Pilot Project Program is a bold initiative to set the ball rolling and change the way the scientific world collaborates forever. We’re inviting researchers, strategy firms, and businesses to apply to the program at www.kolabtree.com. We will choose five most worthwhile projects to sponsor and complete free of cost (up to USD 1000) for the following services: Experiment Design, Statistical Review, Data Analysis, Literature Search, and Scientific Consultation. The last date to submit an entry for the Pilot Project Program is February 15, 2015.
Connect with us on Twitter @KolabTree to remain abreast with the latest developments.
“How do breast cancer cells transform normal cells into tumoral ones?
A new study describes how exosomes secreted by tumor cells contain protein and microRNA molecules capable of transform neighboring cells into tumoral cells promoting tumor growth. "This finding," one researcher said, "opens the door to developing new biomarkers and new therapeutic strategies exploiting these characteristics of exosomes in breast tumors, and other tumors such as ovarian and endometrial cancer among others."

“Improving breast cancer chemo by testing patient's tumors in a dish
A technique that monitors the response of 3D chunks of a patient's tumor has been developed to determine how effective different anti-cancer drugs will be before starting chemotherapy. In a new article, the engineers describe applying the technique to the three major forms of breast cancer. They report that the test can detect significant drops in the metabolic activity levels of all three types of tumors within 72 hours when exposed to an effective drug whereas tumors that were resistant to a drug show no change.
