MEDx is fundamentally changing the way in which Duke approaches complex challenges.
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.
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."
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.”
Geoff Ginsburg, Ephraim Tsalik, Ricardo Henao, and Chris Woods are authors on this paper on prognostic models for 30-day mortality from sepsis infection.
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.
Geoff Ginsburg was part of a team that investigated the US landscape of research programs in PGx implementation, review current advances and clinical applications of PGx, summarize the obstacles that have hindered PGx implementation, and identify the critical knowledge gaps and possible studies needed to help to address them.
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.
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.
