Studying Diverse Populations Can Boost Genetic Discovery, Curb Health Disparities

Rutgers University-New Brunswick

Studying diverse, multi-ethnic populations can increase genetic discoveries and reduce health disparities, according to one of the largest genetic studies of Hispanics and Latinos, African-Americans, Asians and other minorities. The study by Rutgers and other institutions, published in the journal Nature, looked at genetic variants, or mutations, in nearly 50,000 people of non-European descent.

Successful ‘alien’ bird invasions are location dependent

University of Utah

A new study published today in Nature, shows that alien bird introductions are most successful in locations and climates similar to their native habitats and in places where other alien species are already established. The discovery is important for understanding the processes that help or hinder species moving between locations, and the next steps for predicting and limiting the threat of future biological invasions.

New Study Highlights Need for Ethnic and Ancestral Diversity in Genomic Research

Fred Hutchinson Cancer Research Center

A new multicenter analysis led by researchers at the Fred Hutchinson Cancer Research Center, the Icahn School of Medicine at Mount Sinai and other institutions found the inclusion of diverse, multiethnic populations in large-scale genomic studies is critical for reducing health disparities and accurately representing genetics-related disease risks in all populations. The results appear in the June 19 issue of the journal Nature.

UIC’s Institute for Tuberculosis Research tapped to support $28 million drug discovery project

University of Illinois at Chicago

The University of Illinois at Chicago will work with TB Alliance to help find new drug treatments for tuberculosis, a bacterial infection considered to be one of the leading causes of death worldwide. The goal is to produce two new clinical-stage drug candidates for treating tuberculosis, which is becoming increasingly resistant to available antibiotics.
