NIH grants examine how genomic information can affect patients' health

Read moreNew National Institutes of Health (NIH) grants aim to gauge if genomics can help diagnose diabetes, keep heart disease patients out of hospitals and guide cancer clinicians and patients to the most effective drugs. These pilot demonstration awards, totaling more than $11 million, are part of the Implementing Genomics in Practice (IGNITE) program administered by the National Human Genome Research Institute, part of NIH.

As the human microbiome comes into clearer focus, researchers look more closely at its role in health and disease

Read more Bethesda, Md., Wed., Sept. 10, 2014 - In the second phase of the Human Microbiome Project, three research teams funded by the National Institutes of Health (NIH) are gathering data at the most basic molecular levels about the biological processes that make up the host-microbiome ecosystem. The three conditions chosen as test beds - because of their wide impact and because they can serve as models of other microbiome-associated human conditions - are pregnancy and preterm birth, onset of inflammatory bowel disease and onset of type 2 diabetes.
