About the Program

The Genomic Medicine program provides an outstanding research environment for studying principles and practice of genomic medicine including genetics, genomic, proteomic, drug discovery, pharmacogenomics, and computational data analysis. 

Students will learn from experts how to use modern, high throughput technologies, in vitro and in vivo models, and patient data to study human diseases, create diagnostic tools, and develop new therapies. Contributing faculty expertise includes genomics, proteomics, molecular biology, drug discovery, computational biology, and bioinformatics. Our distinguished faculty teach how to approach fundamental and complex biological questions with these techniques in a variety of research areas – from diabetes to cancer to vision research.
