MEDx is fundamentally changing the way in which Duke approaches complex challenges.
DNA Day commemorates the completion of the Human Genome Project in 2003 and the discovery of DNA’s double helix in 1953, and is a day to learn more
The website for the Global Genomic Medicine Collaborative (G2MC), an initiative founded and co-chaired by CAGPM Director Geoff Ginsburg, recently w
Please join GCB at the Chesterfield Building on February 2, from 3 -5 P.M., to celebrate the new home of two core facilities: Sequencing & Genomic Technologies Shared Resource and Proteomics & Metabolomics Shared Resource.
Susanne Haga was awarded an R25 grant from NIH for an undergraduate summer program for underrepresented minority students. She is collaborating with GCB Director Greg Wray. The “Summer Scholars Program in Genome Sciences and Medicine” is supported by the National Human Genome Research Institute.
Micah McClain received an award from Cystic Fibrosis Foundation Therapeutics, Inc. for a project entitled "Biomarker signatures for diagnosis of acute respiratory syndromes in CF." The overall goal of this project is to utilize host-derived biomarkers to evaluate the presence and severity of acute respiratory illness in at-risk hosts with Cystic Fibrosis following lung transplantation.
Alex Limkakeng was awarded a grant from the Emergency Medicine Foundation. He will be working with co-Investigator Ephrain Tsalik and Ricardo Henao. The project is entitled “MicroRNAs to Identify Myocardial Ischemia During Stress Testing In The Emergency Department.”
Micah McClain was awarded an R21 grant from NIH for a project entitled "Host-derived biomarker signatures to differentiate acute viral, bacterial, and fungal infection." This project will develop host-based biomarker signatures capable of identifying the presence and type of infections in vulnerable immunocompromised human subjects to potentially allow for earlier, more directed therapy.
Lori Orlando and Ryanne Wu were awarded a Duke/Duke-NUS grant for their pilot project “Development and clinical implementation pilot of an oncology-specific risk assessment tool in Singapore.” This project will be funded for one year.
Geoff Ginsburg and co-authors from Geisinger, Harvard, and CDC published a paper in Genetics in Medicine proposing a collaborative model approach to accelerate evidence generation for genomic-based technologies.
The experiences of implementing personalized medicine programs at six NHGRI-funded IGNITE sites were reviewed and analyzed, identifying three common challenges: electronic health record integration; clinician attitudes, knowledge, or awareness; and patient engagement. The paper was published in BMC Medical Genomics.
Susanne Haga and colleagues from Northern Viriginia’s Inova Health System have published an overview of the novel PGx testing program for newborns. This paper was selected as the PharmGKB Curator's Favorite Papers for October 30, 2017.
Lucas and Voora collaborated with researchers from the US Air Force in their examination of EHR data from the Military Health System on statin adherence and outcomes.
In this commentary, the authors discuss some of the issues related to patient and participant access to their raw sequencing files.
Working with collaborators from Korea, Miami, and Cincinnati, the researchers extended their prior work on chromosome 8 of A/J mice with susceptibility to S. aureus infection.
The CGSU provides the infrastructure and operational excellence to support translational research in genome and implementation sciences.
The laboratory brings together expertise in molecular microbiology with genome sciences to develop next-generation diagnostic tests.
We support biobanking activities including IRB, sample collection, processing, storage, bar-coded chain of custody and e-inventory management.
