In an article posted on Health.com, Ephraim Tsalik helps describe the differences between pneumonia and bronchitis.
Ephraim Tsalik is one of five finalists for the Antimicrobial Resistance Diagnostic Challenge through NIH. He will receive a grant to further develop his prototype and supply it for testing to two CLIA-certified independent laboratories.
Micah McClain received a 4-year Merit Award from the VA to explore the host genomic response to rickettsial infections in human patients and develop novel PCR-based tests that are capable of accurately diagnosing Spotted Fever Group rickettsii and Scrub typhus infections, which will allow for better therapeutic decision making.
Lori Orlando is the PI of an NIH sub-contract for a supplemental proposal to Vanderbilt University’s Electronic MEdical Records and GEnomics (eMERGE) project. The goal of the project is to incorporate MeTree into the electronic health record (EHR) systems at three US sites and the National Health Service in England.
Geoff Ginsburg was part of a team that investigated the US landscape of research programs in PGx implementation, reviewed current advances and clinical applications of PGx, summarized the obstacles that have hindered PGx implementation, and identified the critical knowledge gaps and possible studies needed to help to address them.
Ginsburg co-authored an overview of precision medicine and its vital stakeholders. Haga along with Duke undergraduate research assistant Ariel Kantor report on their analysis of the number and types of pharmacogenetic tests offered by clinical testing laboratories in the U.S.
Led by researchers from Harvard Medical School and Harvard Pilgrim Health Care Institute, the study reported variation between Medicare contractors and private insurers regarding coverage of testing for cancer treatment.
Several CAGPM staff and faculty co-authored a paper published in Genetics in Medicine on implementation, adoption, and utility of family health history risk assessment in diverse care settings.
Rachel Mills and several other genetic counselors have published examples of pharmacogenetic testing applications across a range of medical specialties.
Deepak Voora, Susanne Haga and others evaluated the impact of pharmacogenetic testing-informed statin treatment compared to usual care with respect to patient adherence and LDL response.
