NSIGHT: Sequencing of Newborn Blood Spot DNA to Improve and Expand Newborn Screening

Principal Investigator(s): Puck, Jennifer

Institution: UNIVERSITY OF CALIFORNIA, SAN FRANCISCO

FOA Number: PA-18-591

Abstract

The purpose of the Newborn Sequencing In Genomic medicine and public HealTh (NSIGHT) program is to explore, in a limited but deliberate manner, the implications, challenges and opportunities associated with the possible use of genomic sequence information in the newborn period. Funds will be used to stimulate research in three component projects specifically applicable to newborn screening:

1) Acquisition and analysis of genomic datasets that expand considerably the scale of data available for analysis in the newborn period.

2) Clinical research that will advance understanding of specific disorders identifiable via newborn screening through promising new DNA-based analysis.

3) Research related to the ethical, legal and social implications (ELSI) of the possible implementation of genomic sequencing of newborns.
