The Duke Center for Combinatorial Gene Regulation (CCGR), an NIH-funded Center of Excellence in Genome Science, awarded two Clinical Trainee Pilot Research Grants of $15,000 each to Duke clinical trainees. The goal of these grants is to offer multi-disciplinary/cohort-based training in genetics and genomics for clinical trainees, expand the cohorts available to the CCGR project and develop new clinical partnerships.
The Center for Combinatorial Gene Regulation was kicked off in October 2020 during a time of ongoing uncertainty and hybrid work environments. The strength of the collaborative relationships supported by the seven PI leadership team enabled the successful start of this NIH-funded center. To read more, visit here.
