August 7, 2009

National Cancer Institute Leads New, Innovative Approach to Research Funding

Arlington, VA— Decision Lens, a leading provider of desktop and Web-based decision support software for enterprise resource allocation and planning, is partnering with The National Institutes of Health National Cancer Institute (NCI) to identify specific cancer vaccine target antigens for accelerated research.

Using Decision Lens software, NCI developed a list of "ideal" cancer antigen criteria/characteristics and evaluated numerous representative antigens against those criteria for potential accelerated funding. Decision Lens enabled NCI to capture input from academia, industry and government in an un-biased and structured way.

NCI has recognized potential in some developmental cancer vaccines, and is interested in new approaches for identification, prioritization, and funding of translational cancer research. "We're pleased to offer our software and services to help NCI explore new research opportunities," explained Decision Lens CEO John Saaty.
