NIH grants aim to decipher the language of gene regulation
NIH has awarded more than $28 million to researchers to decipher the language of how and when genes are turned on and off. These awards are from the Genomics of Gene Regulation program of the National Human Genome Research Institute. Researchers will study gene networks and pathways in body systems, such as skin, immune cells and lung. The resulting insights into the mechanisms may ultimately lead to new avenues for developing treatments for diseases.

New liver cancer target is a protein that accelerates inflammation
Hepatitis, alcohol consumption, and even obesity can produce chronic inflammation in the liver and set the stage for cancer.
