Center Training Program Empowers Genetic Counselors in Research
Geoffrey Ginsburg has received a supplemental award to the IGNITE II Coordinating Center: Engagement, Coordination, Demonstration, and Dissemination to provide support to the NHGRI Training Modules in Genomic Medicine program.
Lori Orlando has received a sub-award (1U01-HG011166-01) through the Vanderbilt University Medical Center for a project entitled "The Electronic Medical Records and Genomics (eMERGE) Genomic Risk Assessment and Management Network-Coordinating Center."
Chris Woods has received a sub-award () through the Institute for Medical Research, Inc. for a project entitled "IMR PSA - Deborah Murray Ensemble Study."
Geoffrey Ginsburg has received a sub-award (NNJ15HK11B) through KBRwyle for a project entitled "One-Carbon Metabolism Genetics Data Analyses."
Ryan Shaw and Ph.D. student Anna Diane received an award for Diane's NIH/NINR NRSA Fellowship proposal "Engaging Black Men in Digital Health to Improve Self-Management of Type 2 Diabetes: An Iterative Participatory Design Approach."
The Enabling Precision Health and Medicine Bass Connections team, led by Susanne Haga, has been renewed for the 2020-2021 school year.
Lori Orlando, along with a team at Vanderbilt, was awarded a NIH Moonshot grant focused on boosting hereditary cancer identification. The team will use MeTree to collect and analyze family health history.
Dr. Geoffrey Ginsburg spoke at the National Institute of Environmental Health Sciences on accelerating science and advancing health through the International HundredK+ Cohorts Consortium.
Dr. Chris Woods spoke with KNX 1070 News Radio to discuss our preparedness for the next pandemic.
Geoff Ginsburg presented an overview of IGNITE I and II at the Global Genomic Medicine Collaborative Virtual International Conference.
CAGPM faculty member Dr. Chris Woods and Dr. Colin Duckett from Duke Health recently joined Congressman David Price on Facebook Live to help answer questions about COVID19.
CAGPM affiliated faculty member Murali Doraiswamy, M.D., hosted George Church, Ph.D., at the Genomic and Precision Medicine Weekly Forum.
Ytina Mangum, Alexis Kessenich, Monica Grier and Sabrina Beatty participate in Breast Cancer Walk.
CAGPM faculty and staff showed that the transcriptome in peripheral blood reveals unique aspects of the immune response in COVID-19 and provides for novel biomarker-based approaches to diagnosis.
CAGPMers monitored Duke students and close contacts who developed respiratory tract infection symptoms, demonstrating transcriptomal biomarkers' ability to accurately predict and diagnose infection.
Ricardo Henao and team investigated natural language processing methods to identify patients with peripheral artery disease, offering a more effective alternative to the structured data-based approach.
Susanne Haga and Lori Orlando provide an overview of various risk assessment approaches and their benefits, limitations and implementation challenges.
Deepak Voora, T32 fellow Olivia Dong and team have been working on the Veterans Affairs Pharmacogenomic Testing for Veterans clinical program, which offers free, multi-gene pharmacogenomic (PGx) testing for 250,000 veterans over 5 years.
Chris Woods and team observed age-related variability in SARS-CoV-2 symptoms between children and adolescents, as well as Hispanic ethnicity and history of asthma playing a role in infection risk.
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.
