The cancer genetics and genomics research laboratories occupy over 5,500 square feet of state-of-the-art laboratory space. The recently renovated areas are well equipped for research in genetics, genomics, and cellular and molecular biology.
The Cancer Genetics and Genomics Program combines cancer research with a clinic that translates research progress into useful information for patient families and their physicians.
