Quotes

...Daly, also founding chief of the Analytic and Translational Genetics Unit at Massachusetts General Hospital. "This sort of study cannot be done without the collaboration and cooperation we relied on across the consortium."
Bioinformatician and co-author, Robert Kofler, explains: "We are dealing with genetic change processes and are searching for variations in the genomes. The variations can help us to understand how evolution works."
"I'm excited to join the Regeneron Genetics Center at such a promising time for the field," said Dr. Lifton. "Regeneron's science-driven culture and track record of solving key R&D challenges uniquely positions the RGC to rapidly translate genetic discoveries into medical innovations and therapies that can truly help patients."
"The Comstock Award is a great honor, and I am truly grateful to the Southeastern Branch of the ESA for this recognition" said Tripodi, who is expected to complete her doctorate this fall
