Darrell Dinwiddie and Neil Miller have joined the Center for Pediatric Genomic Medicine at Children's Mercy Hospital in Kansas City, Miss. They both join the hospital from the National Center for Genome Resources and report to the center's director, Stephen Kingsmore.

Dinwiddie will serve as the center's director of lab operations. Previously, he was a postdoctoral fellow at the NCGR, and before that, a postdoctoral fellow at the Lovelace Respiratory Research Institute.

Miller will be informatics director at the hospital's Center for Pediatric Genomic Medicine. His most recent post at the NCGR was deputy director for software engineering.

Lung Cancer Response to Checkpoint Inhibitors Reflected in Circulating Tumor DNA

In non-small cell lung cancer patients, researchers find in JCO Precision Oncology that survival benefits after immune checkpoint blockade coincide with a dip in ctDNA levels.

Study Reviews Family, Provider Responses to Rapid Whole-Genome Sequencing Follow-up

Investigators identified in the European Journal of Human Genetics variable follow-up practices after rapid whole-genome sequencing.

BMI-Related Variants Show Age-Related Stability in UK Biobank Participants

Researchers followed body mass index variant stability with genomic structural equation modeling and genome-wide association studies of 40- to 72-year olds in PLOS Genetics.

Genome Sequences Reveal Range Mutations in Induced Pluripotent Stem Cells

Researchers in Nature Genetics detect somatic mutation variation across iPSCs generated from blood or skin fibroblast cell sources, along with selection for BCOR gene mutations.
