The Graduate Program in Life Sciences Program in Epidemiology and Human Genetics in the School of Medicine offers a diverse array of integrated opportunities to develop skills for discovering how population, molecular, and genetic variations relate to health and disease.
These skills are essential for translating new basic research findings into clinical practice and applying them to public health. New findings from epidemiology and human genetics research consistently make the news. Students in this program become leaders in improving the health of local, regional, and global populations. The program combines traditional areas of biomedical, genetic, clinical, and community studies with opportunities to learn and apply observational, biostatistical, molecular, and genomic tools in their investigations.
