Decoding the Genetics of Stress

Did you know up to 90% of all doctor’s office visits are now related to stress-related ailments and complaints? The Decoding Stress Study aims to change that

An Update on Type 1 Diabetes Research

PNRI Principal Investigator Bill Hagopian, MD, PhD, discusses his research, the connection between type 1 diabetes and celiac, and his hopes for the future of diagnosis and treatment. And John Caudill of Sheridan Vineyard walks through tasting some of Sheridan’s tasty reds. Part of the Science and Wine Club, a quarterly conversation series by PNRI

Adapting to Stress

PNRI Scientist Lisa Stubbs, PhD, explains the link between stress and health, and how it’s all tied to our genetics. Chuck Reininger, owner and winemaker at Reininger Winery discusses how wine vineyards use plant stress to produce healthy plants and desirable wines.

New Type 1 Diabetes Test Among 2020's Top Genomic Advances

“We’re really excited by these findings. They suggest that the routine heel-prick testing of babies done at birth could go a long way towards preventing early sickness as well as predicting which children will get type 1 diabetes years later.”

“Your gift helps make today’s potential tomorrow’s healthier reality. Research is the key.”

William Hutchinson, MD
PNRI Founder

“If our society continues to support basic research on how living organisms function, it is likely that my great grandchildren will be spared the agony of losing family members to most types of cancer.”

Paul Boyer, Nobel Prize winner

“To raise new questions, new possibilities, to regard old problems from a new angle, requires creative imagination and marks real advance in science.”

Albert Einstein

“I believe in innovations and that the way you get innovation is you fund research and you learn the basic facts.”
