Oct. 21, 2021—An international research team has developed a new resource that connects genetic variants and protein expression, which is expected to speed the identification of genes that cause disease — and point to novel treatment strategies.
Oct. 22, 2020—Vanderbilt Genetics Institute investigators have added a new method to the computational genetics toolbox. Their approach, described in the journal Nature Genetics, integrates vast genomics datasets to predict gene expression and facilitate discovery of genetic mechanisms underlying human diseases.
Sep. 10, 2020—Eric Gamazon, PhD, assistant professor of Medicine, has been awarded a $1.5 million grant from the National Human Genome Research Institute, part of the National Institutes of Health (NIH), to develop novel computational tools that integrate functional genomic data and electronic health records.
Jan. 13, 2020—An international research team has discovered a new genetic syndrome caused by mutation of a single gene and named it CATIFA, an acronym for its core symptoms.
Apr. 24, 2019—In a series of studies that volleyed between large databases and research in zebrafish, Vanderbilt investigators have discovered a link between vascular biology and eye disease.
Oct. 11, 2018—Loss of a protein that regulates mitochondrial function can greatly increase the risk of myocardial infarction (heart attack), Vanderbilt scientists reported Oct. 3 in the journal eLife.
Jul. 26, 2018—An international team of researchers has integrated gene expression and disease association data to better understand the biological mechanisms of complex human diseases.
Feb. 15, 2018—Eric Gamazon, PhD, research instructor in the Division of Genetic Medicine at Vanderbilt University School of Medicine, is spending part of the academic year at Cambridge University in England as one of 40 Clare Hall Visiting Fellows.
