NHGRI issues grants to study genetic variation in ethnicities
October 2013
SHARING OPTIONS:

BETHESDA, Md.—Through its Population Architecture Using Genomics and Epidemiology (PAGE) program, the National Human Genome Research Institute (NHGRI), part of the National Institutes of Health, is granting five research teams four-year awards to study the genomics of disease susceptibility in ethnically diverse populations. The teams will receive more than $3.8 million in fiscal year 2013, and roughly $14 million over the four years of the awards, depending on fund availability.  
 
The researchers will seek to uncover the genetic variations in several groups—including African Americans, Asian Americans, Hispanics and others—to explain the differences in risk for health issues such as high blood pressure, cancer and heart disease. The teams include the Fred Hutchinson Cancer Research Center, Mount Sinai School of Medicine, Rutgers University, the University of North Carolina, the University of Southern California and the University of Hawaii.
