  • The Division's current research interests are focused on genetic medicine, i.e. the development of strategies for understanding and modifying gene expression for the treatment and/or prevention of human disease. Our faculty is interested in conceptualizing and developing new initiatives for understanding the genetic basis of human disease, understanding the function of the human genome, and modulating the genetic repertoire to treat human disorders, including gene therapy. Their work is rooted in the basic sciences, but with an orientation to the treatment and cure of disease by modifying genes and/or their expression, without being limited to any single therapeutic modality.
