GREGoR Consortium Grant Opportunities

Overview

The Genomics Research to Elucidate the Genetics of Rare diseases (GREGoR) Consortium is a network of researchers at five Research Centers and a Data Coordinating Center, funded by the National Human Genome Research Institute (NHGRI) within the National Institutes of Health (NIH). Researchers in the GREGoR Consortium employ a variety of high-throughput sequencing approaches, analytical strategies, and functional assays to achieve this goal.

Purpose of these funding opportunities: The main intention for the Consortium’s Grant Opportunities is two-fold: to bring in needed expertise not currently represented within the Consortium in order to expand the impact that GREGoR provides (the Research Grant awards), and to increase workforce diversity in genomic research (the Grants to Support Workforce Diversity). 

GREGoR’s mission: To significantly increase the proportion of Mendelian conditions with an identified genetic cause. A key objective of the GREGoR Consortium is to develop and apply approaches to discover causal genes underlying Mendelian conditions for which a candidate gene was not identified using whole exome sequencing alone.
