Preferred Academic Centers of Excellence (PACE)

Preferred Academic Centers of Excellence

The goal of the Preferred Academic Centers of Excellence (PACE) program is to establish a network of both small and large academic centers committed to expanding the utility of HTG’s gene expression next-generation sequencing (NGS)-based technology in distinct areas of cancer, neurodegenerative, and auto-immune disease research.

Centers of Excellence will receive first access to new research assays, applications, and data analysis tools. Each PACE will establish a consortium of users, generate impactful data demonstrating the utility of highly multiplexed gene expression assays, and conduct technology workshops to increase awareness of HTG’s technology and it’s applications.
