Center for Human Genetics & Genomics

We study the fundamental genetic causes of human disease to improve patient care.

The Center for Human Genetics and Genomics was created in 2018 to spearhead the development of human genetics programs in research, education, patient care, and community outreach at NYU Langone Health.

Our goal is to harness the immense potential of contemporary genetic technologies and gene discoveries to reveal new knowledge about human biology and the causes of disease.

In collaboration with colleagues in NYU Langone’s basic science and clinical departments and institutes, we aim to develop and improve the science of human genetics, enhance our understanding of the functional basis of human diseases, and facilitate the translation of human genetics into patient care.

Our research interests and expertise utilize the powerful confluence of molecular and quantitative systems biology that promises to change the practice of medicine.
