Sep. 30, 2021—Vanderbilt-Ingram Cancer Center research is providing new insights into how genetic variants convey breast cancer susceptibility by altering the transcription factor proteins that convert DNA strands into RNA.
Jun. 17, 2021— by Paul Govern A meta-analysis published in 1998 in the Journal of the American Medical Association estimated that, leaving aside overdoses and cases of drug abuse, 2.2 million patients admitted to U.S. hospitals in 1994 (6.7% of the total) were either admitted due to a serious adverse drug reaction or had a serious ADR...
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.
Jan. 10, 2019—A large-scale study conducted among East Asians and led by Vanderbilt researchers has identified multiple, previously unknown genetic risk factors for colorectal cancer.
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.
Jun. 14, 2018—Symptoms of schizophrenia and bipolar disorder, including psychosis, depression and manic behavior, have both shared and distinguishing genetic factors, an international consortium led by researchers from Vanderbilt University and Virginia Commonwealth University is reporting.
