 Project objective

Understanding genetic risk for disease is one of the major goals in human genetics. Genome-wide association studies (GWAS) have identified thousands of genetic variants associated with complex human diseases, the majority of them locating in regulatory regions outside of genes. The identification of functional regulatory variants underlying such GWAS associations and understanding their pattern of activity is the key for understanding biological processes behind each genetic association to disease – and without such understanding, targeted interventions and drugs to affect the relevant pathways are not possible. IMAGENE will elucidate the role of functional genetic variants that link immunity and psychiatric disorders such as schizophrenia. This will be achieved by combining state-of-the-art technologies in genome engineering, Next-Generation sequencing and computational biology, which will allow obtaining mechanistic insight into genetic risk of human diseases at unprecedented depth. The applicant has unique interdisciplinary skills to carry out the project, including clinical background and basic research experience in the different fields united in this proposal – human genetics, immunology, and psychiatry. The impact of the project could be enormous, since elucidating the molecular mechanisms of disease-associated variants that link immune function to disease pathology of schizophrenia could contribute to the development of novel treatments for this disease.

Are you the coordinator (or a participant) of this project? Plaese send me more information about the "IMAGENE" project.

For instance: the website url (it has not provided by EU-opendata yet), the logo, a more detailed description of the project (in plain text as a rtf file or a word file), some pictures (as picture files, not embedded into any word file), twitter account, linkedin page, etc.

Send me an  email (fabio@fabiodisconzi.com) and I put them in your project's page as son as possible.

Thanks. And then put a link of this page into your project's website.
