The Genome Integrity PhD Training Program equips students for modern research in genome integrity and how it applies to human disease. Our program emphasizes cellular and molecular mechanisms as they relate to organismal fitness and disease processes. We provide an intellectually diverse and rigorous research environment that offers our students the opportunity to learn the basic principles of genome organization and function in an array of genetic systems.

Our program in genome integrity combines the resources and expertise of both NYU School of Medicine and NYU’s Department of Biology to teach our students the fundamental principles of biology as they relate to genome function. Our program relies on a strong core of investigators with expertise in multiple aspects of genome biology across a broad range of research specialties that include cancer biology, immunology, and stem cell research.

Students are admitted to the program through the Sackler Institute of Graduate Biomedical Sciences. Learn more about graduate admissions.
