Duke Center for Human Genetics:

A revolution in research — A revolution in healthcare

Under the leadership of Dr. Elizabeth Hauser, the Duke Center for Human Genetics brings together faculty with clinical, molecular, and analytical expertise. Through partnerships with scientists and health care professionals worldwide, we are accelerating the discovery of genes involved in human disease.
