The Institute for Systems Genomics at the University of Connecticut awarded $50,000 annually for five years to each of four multidisciplinary research teams studying genomics. Funds will cover studies on: the impacts of stress on the gut microbiome in preterm babies; genetic variants, biomarkers and mechanisms of chemotherapy drug toxicity; chromatin interactions, epigenomics and transcriptional responses involved in drug interactions; and neuronal dysfunction in autism spectrum disorders. Researchers from UConn, Jackson Laboratory for Genomic Medicine, Connecticut Children's Medical Center and University of Connecticut Health Center will collaborate on the projects.
