Precision Medicine Pathway

WashU School of Medicine Special Emphasis Pathway

To connect basic scientists with translational researchers, Washington University created the Precision Medicine Pathway. The program accepts 10 students a year from the Division of Biological and Biomedical Sciences Program.   This Pathway introduces 2nd and 3rd year genetics, genomics, and bioinformatics PhD students to the use of genomic and genetic information in the diagnosis and treatment of disease. The students are connected with translational researchers and perform a clinically mentored research project. By gaining both a strong basic science background and knowledge in clinical medicine, these students will become an essential part of the future translational genomic workforce.

Genomics in Medicine Seminar

The Genomics in Medicine seminar series offers attendees a practical background in molecular biology and genetics, an introduction to genomics technologies and research, and an understanding of the clinical application of genomics knowledge.
