  1. Resource Description
    "The long-term goal of the Center for Genomics in Health Disparities and Rare Diseases (CGHDRD) is to provide the critical environment that will enable high quality translational and biomedical research in pharmacogenomics, human genetics and genomics, molecular biology. We aim to develop and strengthen a collaborative research environment by providing research infrastructure that supports the focal areas of research at the University of Puerto Rico Medical Sciences Campus (UPR-MSC), which encompass common diseases such as cancer, neurological and cardiovascular disorders as well as rare disorders, by improving the human and physical resources. The Center focuses these initiatives on externally funded, interdisciplinary, collaborative projects which enhance the quality of translational, biomedical and clinical research at the Medical Sciences Campus linked to health disparities and rare disorders in Puerto Rico and nationally. Collaborations with researchers at institutions outside of Puerto Rico or other RCMI institutions, as well as other academic units in the island and in the UPR system are encouraged. The Center provides the necessary expertise to apply high throughput genotyping, expression profiling and sequencing technologies at the UPR-MSC. Specialized technical staff trains researchers at different levels of their scientific careers in supported technologies. Novel DNA and RNA isolation methodologies are applied to a diverse group of organisms and biological samples for nucleic acids sequence analysis in general."
