Identifying Heart, Lung, and Blood Disease-Causing Variants

by:

The National Institutes of Health, otherwise known as NIH, is the agency operating within the United States Department of Health and Human Services that is fundamentally responsible for all of the country's biomedical and health-related research studies.

In keeping with this mission, the National Institutes of Health has formed a partnership with the National Heart, Lung, and Blood Institute to establish a program that aims to Identify Heart, Lung, and Blood Disease-Causing Variants.

The Identifying Heart, Lung, and Blood Disease-Causing Variants Program aims to follow suit to research studies that intend to identify heart, lung, and blood disease-causing rare or lower frequency variants through the use of the extensive exome data that was discovered under the Recovery and Reinvestment Act of 2009.
