The Center for Human Genomics and Precision Medicine is in a major growth phase. Join us and be part of a fantastic genetics/genomics community. UW-Madison hosts the oldest and largest NIH-funded training graduate program in genetics, a MSc genetic counselling program, and ABMGG-accredited fellowship programs. We benefit from a strong clinical and scientific infrastructure, including a 13-faculty member clinical/metabolic genetics group, Departments of Medical Genetics and Genetics, the Carbone Comprehensive Cancer Center, the Waisman Center, the UW Biotechnology Center, the UW Center for Genomic Science Innovation, and the UW Hospital and Clinics.
Members of our Center have access to all of the benefits of a preeminent public research university that is 6th in the US in research funding. The University of Wisconsin is known for its beautiful lakeside setting in the capitol city of Madison which boasts a high quality of life with excellent schools, affordable housing, low crime, clean air and abundant recreational and cultural opportunities.
Faculty: The Center for Human Genomics and Precision Medicine is leading leading campus wide initiatives to recruit more than 15 new faculty whose primary focus is human genomics and/or precision medicine by 2021.
