Groundbreaking research for new forms of treatment

More than 10,000 genetic disorders have been recorded, and current research is identifying the genetic susceptibilities or predispositions of individuals for many common diseases and cancers. Moving toward this goal, the Department of Genetics and Genomic Sciences is performing research to develop new and improved methods for the diagnosis, prevention, and treatment of rare and common genetic diseases. The Human Genome Project and advances in gene therapy and stem cell biology have accelerated this research.
