Center for Molecular and Human Genetics
The Center for Molecular and Human Genetics
at The Research Institute
at Nationwide Children’s Hospital uses molecular and genetic tools to investigate normal developmental processes and that the pathogenesis of complex disorders such as congenital heart disease, autism, atherosclerosis, and systemic lupus erythematosus.
The Center employs the most advanced post-genomic technologies, maintains close ties with clinical geneticists and the genetics diagnostic laboratories at Nationwide Children’s Hospital, as well as with the Divisions of Cardiology, Nephrology, Psychology and Gastroenterology.
