Salk Institute awarded historic $42 million grant from the Helmsley Charitable Trust
Date:1/23/2013

ich may explain why patients with similar genetic profiles respond differently to treatment.

"Chronic illness leads to distinctive changes at the genetic level and this gives us a new way to approach diagnosis and treatment," says Ronald M. Evans, professor in Salk's Gene Expression Laboratory. "HCGM will allow experts in cellular genetics and genomics to team up and seek out common molecular signatures of disease. Chronic diseases are complex, and to understand them you need to blend science, medicine and new advances in drug discovery by approaching them from different angles."

The Helmsley Charitable Trust's important gift is one of several major contributions made to Salk by the Trust. In 2009, the Trust issued a $5.5 million grant to found the

Salk Center for Nutritional Genomics to study nutrition at the molecular level and its impact on the role of metabolism in diabetes, obesity, cancer, exercise physiology and lifespan. The Trust awarded an additional $15 million in 2010 to create a collaborative stem cell project involving Salk and Columbia University to fast-track the use of induced pluripotent stem cells to gain new insight into disease mechanisms and screen for novel therapeutic drugs.

"Our philanthropic investment in Salk has produced tangible and impactful results, upon which this latest grant will build significantly," says Codey. "With the Helmsley Center for Genomic Medicine we are partnering with Salk to tackle some of the most devastating diseases facing humankind."
