ECHORN awarded NIH grant focused on precision medicine

Yale University is please to announce the establishment of the Yale Transdisciplinary Collaborative Center for Health Disparities Research Focused on Precision Medicine (YALE-TCC). The YALE-TCC is a coalition of research institutions and stakeholder member organizations focused on African descent and Hispanic populations living in the Eastern Caribbean. The YALE-TCC proposes a research portfolio that combines multiple types of data to improve our ability to identify who is at risk for hypertension and type 2 diabetes. Through the coordinated activities of the YALE-TCC, the ultimate goal is to identify and test culturally relevant and low resource interventions to reduce the population burden of hypertension and type 2 diabetes and to inform clinical care delivery to individual patients at high risk for these diseases and their consequences.
