NIH funding

HudsonAlpha's Genome Gateway collects family histories and facilitates secure communication between patients, clinicians, and researchers.

A $5 million NIH grant will fund CPIC's ongoing work to develop PGx guidelines and an API for incorporating them into EHRs and clinical decision support systems.

The institutions will develop a cloud-based storage and compute infrastructure for unrestricted and controlled-access data and metadata from NHGRI's projects.

The National Institutes of Health Commercial Accelerator Program helps small healthcare and life science companies bring their products to market.

The funding will help the consortium continue creating and updating PGx guidelines, adding drug-gene pairings, and creating electronic tables that can be integrated within EHRs.

The bipartisan bill passed both the House and Senate by large margins and increases the NIH's budget by 5.4 percent over its fiscal 2018 funding level.

UCSD plans to expand the Metabolomics Workbench to include a wide range of clinical trials data including demographics and trial protocols.

The centers will generate genotype and whole-genome sequence data from the samples submitted by participants.

Applicants will be expected to develop the capacity to conduct up to 200,000 genome-wide assays per year and generate high-quality genotyping and genome sequence data.

The six-year, $190 million Somatic Cell Genome Editing program aims to remove barriers that slow the adoption of genome editing for treating patients.
