Million Veteran Program (MVP)

Tuesday, June 24th, 2014

Principal Investigators :

John Concato, M.D., M.S., M.P.H.

J. Michael Gaziano, M.D., M.P.H.


It’s Launch Time for the Million Veteran Program…

The VA Office of Research and Development is launching its
unprecedented partnership between VA and Veterans who volunteer to help build one of the largest databases of genetic, military exposure and health information. The Million Veteran Program (MVP) promises to reshape the field of genomics—a sophisticated science poised to revolutionize health care for Veterans and others throughout the U.S. and around the world.


From Schmidt’s talk: The Million Veteran Program is building a DB of genetic, military exposure & health info #1000gb

A mammalian pseudogene lncRNA at the interface of inflammation and anti-inflammatory therapeutics | eLife

Sunday, June 22nd, 2014

We identify an lncRNA pseudogene, Lethe (named after the mythological river of forgetfulness, for its role in negative feedback), which is expressed in response to proinflammatory cytokines TNFα and IL-1β, and the anti-inflammatory agent, dexamthasone, but is not responsive to microbial components, and is primarily found on the chromatin. Lethe is regulated by RelA, independent of pseudogene family members and proximal genes. Additionally, Lethe is dramatically downregulated in aged spleen. Finally, Lethe binds directly to RelA to inhibit NF-κB DNA binding activity. These findings suggest that Lethe may function as a novel negative regulator of NF-κB, to help fine tune the inflammatory response.
