Description: Co-hosted by the National Cancer Institute (NCI), the National Human Genome Research Institute (NHGRI), the National Institute of Mental Health (NIMH), and the NIH Common Fund, the symposium will highlight the scientific goals of the GTEx program and progress in collecting and analyzing biospecimens from over 25 organ sites from 900 post-mortem donors. This two-day event is designed to inform the research community of the resources and infrastructure that are available for their use.

About GTEx:

The Genotype-Tissue Expression (GTEx) program is a National Institutes of Health (NIH) Common Fund study. The overall goal of the GTEx project is to increase our understanding of how changes in our genes contribute to common human disease, in order to improve health care for future generations. To achieve that goal, GTEx has been collecting and analyzing biospecimens from over 900 post mortem donors. With over 800 cases of the total collection completed and analyzed to date, the GTEx program stands poised to make a significant impact on the understanding of human biology and disease. GTEx is a unique program that can provide a deep understanding of normal gene expression, gene mutation, and variation.

The Symposium:

This two day symposium will cover a broad range of topics that focus on the collection of normal biospecimens for GTEx. Topics include an overview of the GTEx program; the biospecimen challenges for GTEx; establishing the approach for GTEx prospective collections; new systems that were developed to implement the program; ethical, legal, and societal investigations within the program; and scientific outcomes from the work thus far.
