Human Genetics and Genomics (Ph.D.) University of Miami Miller
The Interdepartmental Ph.D. Program in Human Genetics and Genomics (HGG) is a multidisciplinary program aimed at training scientists broadly in areas of human genetics and genomics relevant to human health and disease.
All students receive training in three core competencies: molecular, computational, and clinical genetics. Students are exposed to all aspects of human genetics research, from the patient to the underlying mechanism. Students are prepared to be the next generation of genomic scientists with a variety of skills, e.g., induced pluripotent stem cells, animal modeling, family studies, and large-scale population-based datasets. They are also trained to translate their research results into improved medical care and public health interventions.
