Welcome to the Department of Biomedical Genetics

The Department of Biomedical Genetics investigates how cell regulation and signaling pathways control complex biological processes, including stem cell maintenance and differentiation, cancer, aging, and organism development. There is a focus on genetically tractable human disease models. Multidisciplinary research using state-of-the-art approaches in cell biology, genetics, genomics, systems and computational biology is conducted in the department.

Graduate Education

Excellence in graduate education is a high priority in the Department. Faculty members are affiliated with multiple Ph.D. programs. Most are members of the Genetics, Genomics and Development Program. The Department offers a number of lecture courses in the areas of cell biology, genetics, genomics, systems biology and biomedicine.
