DeCode, Emory Medical School to Study Sleep Disorders

NEW YORK, Dec. 11 (GenomeWeb News) - DeCode Genetics will help Emory University's medical and nursing schools to research sleep disorders with the goal of developing new drugs, the university said.
The collaboration is an extension of a partnership DeCode and Emory penned in 2002 to test whether the company's genotyping discoveries in
Icelandcan be applied to a more diverse population.

The new deal will use the same model to determine whether genes linked to certain types of sleep disorders in Icelandic patients are responsible for similar problems in the US heterogeneous population, Emory said.
