The Human Genome holds clues to health, illness, behavior and emotion. These clues are often not easily understood, and many remain to be discovered. Education, Research and Clinical Care are key missions of the Emory Department of Human Genetics. We take seriously our responsibility to train the next generation of genetic professionals and to teach and facilitate an understanding of all things genetic. Our involvement occurs across multiple levels.
