Dean's Workshops

Yale Center for Genomic Health

Friday, April 23, 2021

This workshop features the new center, which brings together researchers and other partners employing state-of-the-art genomic technology to investigate the genetic basis of health and disease. In this workshop, we will highlight resources at Yale and studies in progress across the university. With this event and the launch of the center, we seek to promote new interactions in genetic investigations within and beyond our campus.

The workshop introduces Ira Hall, PhD, the inaugural director of Yale Center for Genomic Health, who will discuss the focus and new efforts underway in the center. At the conclusion of the workshop, we will also provide an online survey link for your ideas and questions.
