Hereditary Conditions and Gene Discovery
Major medical advances are being made to understand genes involved in hereditary susceptibility to illnesses such as cancer, heart disease, and mental illness. Such advances help us in many ways. We can identify people who are at a higher risk to develop medical conditions. We can design early detection programs and preventative treatment measures for people who may have inherited a disease-related gene mutation.
The Center for Medical Genetics is a leader in research to discover disease related gene mutations and life-sustaining research to keep you SAFE. You may be eligible to take part in ongoing studies as a research subject. Our studies include:
