NIH completes in-depth genomic analysis of 33 cancer types

Read MoreResearchers funded by the National Institutes of Health (NIH) have completed a detailed analysis on over 10,000 tumors from 33 forms of cancer from a dataset containing molecular and clinical information. Known as the Pan-Cancer Atlas, and published as a collection of 27 papers across a suite of Cell journals, this analysis empowers cancer clinicians and researchers through a comprehensive understanding of how, where and why tumors arise in humans.

Slaughter was a strong advocate for genomics research, and her work on GINA helped create protections against genetic discrimination in employment and health insurance.

NIH pilot project will match researchers to genes, gene variants of interest

NIH TGACThe National Institutes of Health and Inova have launched a new match-making service between genes and gene variants and the researchers who study them. The Genomic Ascertainment Cohort (TGAC) project will be based in the Washington, D.C., area so that researchers can recall genotyped participants to examine the genes and gene variants that influence their phenotype.
