NIH to Fund Genomics Studies Linking HLA and KIR Regions with Diseases | GenomeWeb

NEW YORK (GenomeWeb) – The National Institute of Health will award up to $3.4 million next year to fund genomics research programs and projects aimed at better understanding how two complex human genomic regions are involved in a range of immune system diseases.

The grants will support research programs focused on the HLA (human leukocyte antigen) and the KIR (natural killer cell immunoglobin-like receptor) genomic regions, which are involved in human susceptibility and resistance to immune-related diseases.
