New Centers of Excellence in Genomics Science are to be established at the Medical College of Wisconsin and University of North Carolina, Chapel Hill, according to NIH. Grants totaling about $45 million from NHGRI and NIMH will be used to establish those centers and help maintain ones at Johns Hopkins University and the University of Southern California. The new Wisconsin center will focus on how regulatory genes are influenced by other biological processes, diseases, or the environment and the UNC center will search for genetic and environmental factors associated with psychiatric disorders.
