Research faculty cover most areas of Human and Medical Genetics and modern
molecular biology. Fifteen members of our faculty are Diplomats of the
American Board of Medical Genetics. Six are members of the National Academy
The program is designed to train individuals for academic careers in
human and medical genetics. The philosophy of the program is to use
the most advanced concepts and techniques of genetics and cellular/molecular
biology in the elucidation of problems in human and medical genetics.
Research as well as clinical competence is stressed. Research activities
span a wide spectrum of topics in basic and clinical human genetics.
Funded training positions are available.
Genetic Medicine Clinic
The Medical Genetics Counseling and Diagnostic Center has specialists with training in numerous areas of Medical Genetics.
Northwest Institute of Genetic Medicine
