NIH to grant $25M for genomic variants research
November 2013
SHARING OPTIONS:

BETHESDA, Md.—The U.S. National Institutes of Health has announced that it will be awarding more than $25 million over the course of four years to a trio of research teams. The researchers will be focused on the millions of genomic variations related to human disease and those that have the potential to be clinically useful. The consortium of research groups will develop the Clinical Genome Resource, also known as ClinGen, designing and implementing a framework to determine which variants play a role in disease and which are relevant to patient care. They will work closely with National Center for Biotechnology Information of the National Library of Medicine, which will distribute the information through its ClinVar database. The initial focus will be on underlying variants for certain forms of cancer, cardiovascular disease and metabolic disorders.
