UConn/JAX-GM Training Program in Genomic Science
Drs. Brenton Graveley and Charles Lee were awarded a 5-year NIH training grant. “The UConn/JAX-GM Training Program in Genomic Science” sponsored by the National Human Genome Research Institute. This award will support the training of Ph.D. students in the genomic sciences. It is a great collaboration between UConn Health and the Jackson Laboratory for Genomic Medicine to train the next generation of genomic scientists.
Massive Project to Understand Our Genes Reveals Secrets of RNA (as studied by the Graveley Lab)
There are tens of thousands of proteins in the human body. A single lab at UConn Health spent five years studying 356 of them, and they’ve published the results today in three papers in Nature as part of a massive, ongoing collaboration to identify what, exactly, every single protein and bit of DNA and RNA in the human genome does.

Dr. Chamberlain to Collaborate with Ovid Therapeutics on Genetic Therapy for Angelman Syndrome
Angelman syndrome, a rare genetic condition, has been a central focus of UConn researcher Stormy Chamberlain’s career for over a decade. Since 2009, Chamberlain has been using induced pluripotent stem cells (iPSCs) in her lab at UConn Health to study human imprinting disorders that could lead to a cure. (Read More..)
