The Center for Public Health Genomics (CPHG) addresses questions in biology, public health, and medicine by developing and applying state-of-the-art genetic, genomic, and computational approaches to complex human diseases.
Research in the CPHG is focused on translational genomics and personalized medicine — moving basic discoveries in genetics and genomics into clinical settings with the goal of improving the delivery of health care and disease prevention.
Our research projects range from gene discovery to pharmacogenomics to mouse models of human disease. Labs in the CPHG offer graduate research and training opportunities through the UVA School of Medicine, Biomedical Engineering, and the College of Arts and Sciences graduate programs.
Public health genomics is a multi-disciplinary field that focuses on the effective and responsible translation of genetic information and technology for the benefit of population health. A major focus of our work translates genomic discoveries to appropriate population level assessments, policies and disease prevention programs.
