This news item is about: With a new five-year $10 million Specialized Research Center (U54) grant from the National Institutes of Health (NIH), scientists across Cornell’s departments and campuses will collaborate to tackle the roots of reproductive issues and train the next generation of reproduction scientists. With this grant, Cornell has established a new Center for Reproductive Genomics (CRG), joining a national network of similar centers connecting basic and clinical reproductive scientists. Starting April 2014, Cornell’s CRG will investigate how a recently discovered class of molecule called small RNA influences meiotic errors—the genetic basis for reproductive disorders and birth defects.
