NIH to fund genomic medicine

Aug. 8 (UPI) -- The National Institutes of Health is funding $18.9 million in research to accelerate the use of genome sequencing for use in clinical care.

The research funding is part of the Clinical Sequencing Evidence-Generating Research, or CSER2, Consortium, which builds on the 2010 Clinical Sequencing Exploratory Research, or CSER, Consortium.


CSER2 researchers will continue to generate proof for the need of genome sequencing in clinical care, with a focus on underserved individuals.

"Engaging patient populations that are traditionally underrepresented in genomics research, coupled with the inclusion of broader types of healthcare settings, will enrich the data that result from CSER2," Dr. Regina Smith James, director of Clinical and Health Services Research at the National Institute on Minority Health and Health Disparities, said.

CSER2 is awarding grants to six clinical sites and one coordinating center to conduct research that covers geographical areas with racially diverse populations in Houston, Texas, and Harlem and the Bronx, in New York."

:rofl: :hiding:

I'm thinking avoiding that is "survival & health" but we will see....
