The September NICHD Research Perspectives features a discussion on an NICHD funded project to investigate genomic sequencing as a diagnostic tool to screen newborns for health disorders. On September 4, the NICHD and the National Human Genome Research Institute (NHGRI) awarded $5 million to fund studies on the potential for the new technology. This month’s podcast is an excerpt from the news conference in which officials at the NICHD and NHGRI described this new project.

The September podcast is available at http://www.nichd.nih.gov/about/overview/directors_corner/podcasts/Documents/NICHD_Research_Perspectives_090413.mp3 (MP3 - 8 MB) and the transcript at http://www.nichd.nih.gov/about/overview/directors_corner/podcasts/Pages/transcript_perspectives_090413.aspx.
