Center for Molecular and Human Genetics :: The Research Institute at Nationwide Children's Hospital

Center for Molecular and Human Genetics

The Center for Molecular and Human Genetic's mission is to unite basic, translational, and clinical investigators in order to stimulate leading edge research on childhood diseases. Our central themes of research are focused on developmental processes and genetic variations involved in congenital and inherited disease.

Employing the newest technologies in the post-genome era, Center faculty collaborate with clinicians from divisions including Molecular and Human Genetics; Gastroenterology, Hepatology and Nutrition; and Nephrology.

The Center runs two core resources: Cell Line Core and the Transgenic and Embryonic Stem Cell Core.

Research Focuses

Center for Molecular and Human Genetics faculty investigate normal developmental processes and the pathogenesis of complex disorders such as:

  • congenital heart disease
  • autism
  • atherosclerosis
  • systemic lupus erythematosus
  • nephrotic disease
  • gastrointestinal disease
