Genetics & Functional Genomics

An important research focus of this division is to use genomic information to understand disease predisposition, progression and patients' response to drugs. For this, we develop genomic and bioinformatics approaches to identify new biomarkers or candidate drug targets. Our expertise is diverse, spanning from human genetics and functional genomics, to cancer genomics and clinical sequencing. Our main mission is to accelerate the translation of genomic discoveries into the clinic. Members of the division collaborate closely with clinical investigators, in particular via the Clinical and Translational Research Institute.
