UT leads $2.5 million training program in pioneering area of genetic research
Date:1/9/2009

e IMM are identifying the genes responsible for variation in drug response. "

According to Boerwinkle, gene-environment interaction is the cornerstone of personalized medicine, which is the use of a patient's genotype or genetic profile to tailor medical care to an individual's needs. Such information could be used to decide which medication will work best.

Much research on gene-environment interaction is already underway at the UT Health Science Center, where researchers earned two of the initial awards presented through a program created by the National Institutes of Health to promote gene-environment interaction research.

Shine Chang, Ph.D., associate professor at the UT M. D. Anderson Cancer Center, who serves on the consortium training committee, said, "I am thrilled to be part of this highly innovative program to recruit and train researchers to discover and solve critical health problems in an entirely different way than we have in the past. We will help trainees develop skills and experience to bring together diverse perspectives to solve historically intractable health problems such as obesity and cancer that require super multidisciplinary approaches."
