Institute of Genetics and Cancer
One of the largest centres worldwide for human genetics and human medicine, the Institute of Genetics and Cancer has over 500 research and support scientists.
By pooling the resources and complementary skills of partner centres and units, the Institute of Genetics and Cancer (IGC) brings together distinct expertise that maximises scientific discovery and translation of science.
IGC broadly focuses on genes and populations and normal and diseased cells to study development and disease mechanisms. The partner centres and units are grouped strategically to exploit common strengths in genetic and genomic analysis, and protein, cell and tissue regulation in disease, with emerging emphasis on innovative basic and translational science, from molecules to man and populations to process.
