AACR 2018 - Erica Barnell about signs of colorectal cancer without a colonoscopy

Erica Barnell is looking for ways to find signs of colorectal cancer without having to undergo a colonoscopy. Her company Geneoscopy is based on her research, extracting human RNA transcripts from stool samples to detect changes in gene expression. Working with QIAGEN and QIAamp kits, Erica and her team was able to streamline this process and develop an extraction method that eliminates bacterial noise, enriches for human signals, and effectively preserves intact RNA.
