TGen, Barrow and PCH receive $4 million grant to study genetic basis of brain injuries

RNAs are cell molecules made from DNA that help create proteins.

"There has been an explosion over the last several years in our understanding of the functional and regulatory mechanisms modulated by RNA" said Dr. Kendall Van Keuren-Jensen, Ph.D., an Assistant Professor in TGen's Neurogenomics Division and also a principal investigator in the study funded by the National Institutes of Health (NIH).

"We are very excited about the potential for extracellular RNAs to provide us with accessible information about the mechanism of disease, and in doing so, provide us with pre-symptomatic markers of disease," said Dr. Matt Huentelman, Ph.D., an Associate Professor in TGen's Neurogenomics Division and also a principal investigator on the project. "In the best-case scenario, these markers can be coupled with an improved clinical management of the disease, too. In a nutshell, that is what we are exploring under this new grant award."

This type of study is now possible because of continuing improvements in optics and computer speed that enables TGen's cutting-edge technology to sequence at ever-faster rates and at ever-lower costs. While it took 13 years and $2.7 billion to spell out the first human genome, such sequencing can now be done in a matter of days and for less than $5,000.
