A phylogenomic comparison of more than a dozen vertebrate genomes suggests similar brain-related genes have undergone adaptive evolution in the ancestors of humans and elephants.

Wayne State will use a $6.3 million NIH grant to study Charcot-Marie-Tooth genetics and pursue treatments.

With a $2.7 million grant, the genetics and imaging studies will pursue genes linked to OCD.

The funding will support a new ABI Qtrap and genetics and genomics studies of disease and organ growth.

WSU and the Michigan Technology and Research Institute are seeking funding to form a company to shepherd to clinical trials WSU's first candidate, a triple uptake inhibitor for treating depression. They eventually hope to attract a pharma partner for further development.
