Genetics & Genome Biology

Genetics & Genome Biology

Program head: Dr. Monica Justice

Research in the Genetics & Genome Biology program aims to determine the role genes play in paediatric health by innovating sequencing and disease modeling technologies to diagnose rare and common illnesses, understand cancer risk, and identify the mechanistic basis for diseases, thereby informing novel therapies. Genetic analyses, genomic and bioinformatics platforms, preclinical models and ‘big data’ are used to study the genetic and epigenetic contributions to monogenic and complex diseases.
