NeuroLINCS Program Established to Create Database of Human Neuronal Signatures

The University of California, Irvine (UCI) received an $8M award from the NIH to establish and spearhead a Library of Integrate Network-Based Cellular Signatures (LINCS) program focused on human neurons. The goal of the program, called NeuroLINCS, is to create a database of cellular and molecular activity in motor neurons and their responses to perturbations caused by drugs or genetic mutations. The common patterns, or signatures, that emerge will expand our understanding of motor neuron characteristics and how they are affected in ALS and other motor neurons diseases. The NeuroLINCS program will be a consortium of researchers from UCI, Cedars-Sinai Medical Center’s Regenerative Medicine Institute, the Gladstone Institute of Neurological Disease, UC San Francisco, Johns Hopkins University and the Massachusetts Institute of Technology.
