UT leads $2.5 million training program in pioneering area of genetic research

The consortium plans to recruit five to six students a year who will have the opportunity to pursue a doctorate program of their choice at participating institutions, so long as their research is in the broad area of gene-environment interaction. Students opting for the health science center program can receive a doctoral degree from the GSBS, The University of Texas School of Public Health or The University of Texas School of Health Information Sciences at Houston (SHIS). They will work in the laboratories of faculty members at those schools, The University of Texas Medical School at Houston or the IMM.

"The Burroughs Wellcome Fund training grant is a bridge linking the UT Health Science Center, the M. D. Anderson Cancer Center and the Baylor College of Medicine. The program is a model for collaboration in the future," said Eric Boerwinkle, Ph.D., award co-director, director of the Division of Epidemiology and Kozmetsky Family Chair in Human Genetics at the UT School of Public Health and the Institute of Molecular Medicine.

Pharmacogeneticsthe study of the effects of genes on drug responseis an example of a gene-environment interaction, Boerwinkle said.

The particular type of medication the physician prescribes to a patient is not an exact science and there is an element of trial and error in the process. Individuals do not respond to a particular medication to the same extent and some people respond to one drug but not another," Boerwinkle said. "At least a portion of the variation in drug response is attributable to genetic differences among individuals. Researchers at the UT School of Public Health and th
