The Duke Molecular Physiology Institute (DMPI), formerly the Duke Center for Human Genetics, works with people throughout the world in its quest to understand the genetic basis of human diseases. Patients and families come to the Center to learn about their diseases and to participate in genetic studies that will add to the body of knowledge about a wide range of disorders.
