NEW! Kidney Precision Medicine Meeting

This conference aims to bring together all of whom are interested in the treatment of acute and chronic kidney disease

Dates: May 23rd - 25th, 2016
8:00 AM - 5:00 PM
MORE INFO..


Welcome to DiaComp

The goal of the NIDDK-sponsored Diabetic Complications Consortium (DiaComp) is to provide an environment that will foster communication and collaboration between investigator communities involved in complications research.

Toward this goal, DiaComp will:
  1. sponsor annual meetings in complications-relevant scientific areas;
  2. solicit and fund pilot projects in high impact areas of complications research;
  3. support a website to serve the diabetic complications community.

ACCELERATING MEDICINES PARTNERSHIP (AMP)
The NIH, 10 biopharmaceutical companies, and multiple non-profit organizations recently launched the Accelerating Medicines Partnership (AMP) to identify and validate the most promising biological targets for therapeutics. All AMP data is considered precompetitive and made publicly accessible to the broad biomedical community for further research.

New data from the Chronic Renal Insufficiency Cohort (CRIC) study has been added to the NIDDK Repository
Data from the recruitment and follow-up phases of the study through 3/31/2013 are now available. The data package now includes variables related to APOL1, Echocardiogram, Electrocardiogram, and censored composite and individual outcomes. If you have additional questions, please contact: Dr. Rebekah Rasooly, (Rebekah.rasooly@nih.gov)

International Mouse Phenotype Consortium (IMPC)
The goal of the International Mouse Phenotyping Consortium (IMPC) is to discover functional insight for every gene by generating and systematically phenotyping 20,000 knockout mouse strains. The IMPC is generating a knockout mouse strain for every protein coding gene by using the embryonic stem cell resource generated by the International Knockout Mouse Consortium (IKMC). The production of mouse strains from these ES cells are tracked within the "international Micro-injection tracking system" (iMits) and are made available to the research community via public repositories. Systematic broad-based phenotyping is performed by each IMPC center using standardized procedures found within the International Mouse Phenotyping Resource of Standardised Screens (IMPReSS) resource. Gene-to-phenotype associations are made by a versioned statistical analysis with all data freely available. DiaComp has developed an interface to search the the IMPC data by gene symbol, phenotype or procedure/test done on the mice. Click the link below to go to the search page.

Ossabaw Miniature Swine
The Comparative Medicine Program, which is a joint program of Purdue University and Indiana University School of Medicine represents tremendous interdisciplinary synergy and inter-institutional collaboration. Scientists at these universities have established the only research and large-scale breeding colony of Ossabaw swine in the world that is certified to have a gene mutation, the metabolic syndrome, and heart disease. The striking similarities between swine and human biochemistry, physiology, and pathophysiology provide outstanding opportunities for research in translational medicine.
