TGen, Barrow, Phoenix Children’s Land $4M for Brain Injury RNA Sequencing Study

from GenomeWeb


NEW YORK (GenomeWeb News) – Translational Genomics Research Institute, the Barrow Neurological Institute at St. Joseph’s Hospital and Medical Center, and Phoenix Children’s Hospital have received a $4 million grant to search for biomarkers to identify which brain injury patients are at risk for devastating complications, TGen said today.

The funding from the National Center for Advancing Translational Sciences will support the use of RNA sequencing to hunt for biomarkers in brain injury patients that could identify which of them are likely to develop aneurysmal subarachnoid hemorrhage (aSAH) or intraventricular hemorrhage (IVH).
