Last year, scientists at the Albert Einstein College of Medicine, the United States Army Medical Research Institute for Infectious Diseases and Harvard Medical School cited bio-specimens from the NIGMS
When an individual donates a sample to the NIGMS
Repository, they are providing scientists all over the world with the very valuable opportunity to learn more about their specific disease and how their specific genetic make-up influences the symptoms and behaviors associated with their diagnosis.

Eighteen of the cell lines were derived from residual blood samples as described, and 6 were selected from the NIGMS
Human Genetic Cell Repository.

is part of the National Institutes of Health.
research training programs are only open to holders of MD and PhD degrees (35).
Supported in part by NIGMS
R25 GM50117 and REAP, NAS.
We screened 13 cell lines from the NIGMS
Repository for medically important mutations in 11 different genes: CFTR, F5, F2, MTHFR, HFE, GJB2 (connexin 26), FMR1 (fragile X), HBA1/HBA2 ([alpha]-thalassemia), FGFR3, HD, and HbS/HbC.
will supply $150 million over five years to seven research groups based throughout the US.
This study was supported by a grant from the NIGMS
This Request for Information (RFI) will assist NIGMS
in considering the biomedical technology research and development space at all stages, from exploratory to mature.
