Division of Translational Medicine and Human Genetics

The Division of Translational Medicine and Human Genetics helps facilitate research through the department of medicine.

Translational medicine is a term used to describe the "translation" of laboratory research findings into proof of concept in humans, ultimately leading to advances in the diagnosis, prediction, and treatment of disease.

Human genetics encompasses the study of human genetic variation and its impact on health and disease. Medical genetics is a field that has traditionally focused on the clinical management of single–gene Mendelian disorders, but is increasingly focused on common complex disorders with strong genetic components.
