Reuter-Rice Submits DNA Genotek Inc. Application

Friday, July 6, 2018

Kudos to Karin Reuter-Rice and her entire team for the submission of her DNA Genotek Inc. application entitled "Genetic Testing of Children with Mild TBI: Recruitment and Feasibility of DNA Genotek P-157." This proposal requests funding for a one-year period with a start date of Aug. 17, 2018.

This proposal will examine the use of the DNA Genotek collection kits to ensure that, within this population, we can recruit, retain and collect high quality samples of DNA and RNA. In addition, we would like to establish whether we get high quality and quality of DNA from OC-175 in older children (>5 years) and determine if P-157 provides the quality of sample that would allow us to use this kit as a primary collection mechanism for DNA and RNA in children with mTBI.
