Translational Research Support Core

Led by Kelly Brunst, Ph.D. and Jack Rubinstein, MD, the Integrative Health Sciences Facilities Core (IHSFC), now known as the Translational Research Support Core (TRSC), facilitates investigations that enhance bidirectional translation of research on environmental factors in disease causation. Core aims are accomplished through expert consultative services in medicine, epidemiology, statistics, exposure assessment, and informatics tools, as well as clinical research conferences that highlight opportunities for translational research in environmental health. Our goal is to accelerate the transfer of basic biomedical knowledge from the laboratory to applications in prevention, early detection, and treatment, including public policy changes toward improved environmental and human health. We provide consultations on environmental epidemiology, data management & sharing (see, e.g., below), and both traditional and cutting-edge statistical approaches, including analysis of microarray and deep sequencing data, in conjunction with the CEG Bioinformatics Core.

Methods to Better Clarify Your DNA Methylation Data
We are pleased to share here some of the information shared by Dr. Corina Lesseur, Assistant Professor, Department of Environmental Medicine and Public Health, Icahn School of Medicine at Mt. Sinai, and by Dr. Liang Niu, Associate Professor, CEG Bioinformatics Core, during our February 2024 DNA Methylation Workshop.  Dr. Lesseur discussed Post EWAS platforms for interrogating results. Dr. Niu explored ipDMR: Identification of differentially methylated regions with interval P-values.
