Dr. Abraham Palmer and P50 Center receives seed grant from UCSD Center for Microbiome Innovation

The P50 Center's proposal, titled "Genome-wide mapping of gene-microbiome interaction: implication in behavior", has been selected for funding by the UC San Diego's Center for Microbiome Innovation. The purpose of these seed grants is to jump start microbiome research in San Diego and spark new research collaborations.

The NIDA National Center of Excellence for Genome-Wide Association Studies in Outbred Rats (P50DA037844) was founded in 2014 to utilize cutting-edge genetic methods to elucidate the genetics of drug abuse-related behaviors in rats. Dr. Abraham Palmer is the Center's Director.
