Hanover, NH—Under an $11-million grant from the National Institutes of Health (NIH), Dartmouth Medical School (DMS) will lead a network of northern New England institutions in recruiting, training, and supporting young quantitative biologists to teach and conduct research into the ways that genes and the environment work together to trigger and prevent disease.
With computational geneticist Jason Moore as principal investigator, DMS will establish an NIH Center of Biomedical Research Excellence (COBRE). Dartmouth scientists in several disciplines will join forces with colleagues at the University of New Hampshire, the University of Maine, the University of Vermont, Harvard University’s national center for biomedical computing, the University of Southern Maine, Maine’s Jackson Labs and Mount Desert Island Biological Laboratory, and Maine Medical Center.
