Clinical genetics focuses on providing comprehensive diagnostic, management and treatment services with emphasis on tailoring care to specific patient and family needs, through interdisciplinary clinics and programs.
Clinical laboratory services develop and implement state-of-the-art technologies for biochemical, cytogenetic, and molecular diagnostic testing for a multitude of pediatric and adult disorders.
Research and Education
Our research focuses on basic disease mechanisms with translational import and improved outcomes for gene influenced diseases.
The Division of Human Genetics is a leader in genetics education. The Genetic Counseling Graduate Program is one of the oldest and largest such programs in the United States. We have American Board of Medical Genetics-certified training programs in medical genetics, medical and clinical biochemical genetics and Laboratory for Genetics and Genomics (LGG) for training leaders in human genetics.
