Rashid Bashir co-leads research into novel gene expression analysis

Rashid BashirMBM faculty Rashid Bashir co-led a research team that has demonstrated a novel gene expression analysis technique. The technique can do what more conventional methods have been unable to do, by accurately measuring levels of RNA quickly and directly from a cancerous tissue sample while preserving the spatial information across the tissue.

“Our method can detect messenger RNA expression, which can provide additional  insight than just the final protein concentration,” said Bashir.
