NIH Funding to Study the Effects of Gender on Complex Human Traits

IGSB core investigator Barbara Stranger received supplemental funding from NIH to explore the effects of gender on human traits. Her group will characterize these differences and determine what underlies them. This new funding will allow her lab to focus on how gender influences the relationship between genetic differences among individuals and variation in protein levels among individuals and across tissues, with an ultimate goal of understanding how this influences disease susceptibility. Her lab also received funding to specifically investigate the role of gender in pharmacogenomics phenotypes and neuropsychiatric phenotypes (with IGSB core member Andrey Rzhetsky).
