The aim of the consortium is to characterize the genetic variations in human genomic regions that have been putatively associated with type 2 diabetes (T2D) and conduct follow-up functional studies of particular genetic variants. The data coordinating center for the consortium is being solicited via ...

Pharmacokinetic and Pharmacodynamic (PK-PD) Studies of Cardiovascular Drugs (U01)
The objectives of this project are to conduct a prospective PK/PD study in hypertensive patients to link the PK profiles to the time-course of PD activity of metoprolol, therefore, to identify the key product attributes and patient factors that may impact the therapeutic equivalence of metoprolol products. The specific objectives of the study were to: 1) Evaluate the PK-PD relationship; 2) Evaluate the effect of treatment (before and after switching metoprolol products) on the PK-PD relationship; 3) Evaluate the effect of pH variation in the population and rate of delivery on the PK-PD relationship; 4) Evaluate the ef...

Undiagnosed Diseases Gene Function Research (R21)
Funding Opportunity RFA-RM-14-005 from the NIH Guide for Grants and Contracts. This Exploratory/Developmental Research Funding Opportunity intends to support gene function studies in collaboration with the Undiagnosed Diseases Network (UDN) building upon the NIH Intramural Research Programs Undiagnosed Diseases Program (NIH-UDP). Responsive applications will propose to investigate the underlying genetics, biochemistry and/or pathophysiology of newly diagnosed diseases in association with the respective gene variant(s) identified through the UDN. In recent years, gene function studies combined with genetic and genomic an...
