OMRF scientist Christopher Lessard received a five-year grant to identify genes associated with Sjögren’s syndrome.
The new Genes and Human Disease Research Program will broaden OMRF’s investigation into genetic mechanisms in various diseases.
The gene, NCF1, was known by researchers, but it had not previously been linked to lupus
OMRF has received $646,000 to study the genetic origins of NMO.
Findings may point researchers to the origins of this autoimmune disease
Gender bias of diseases like lupus and Sjögren’s could be linked X chromosomes.
