Doctor of Philosophy with a major in Genomic Medicine Augusta University
The Genomic Medicine program provides an outstanding research environment for studying genomic medicine principles and practice, including genetics, genomics, proteomic, drug discovery, pharmacogenomics, and computational data analysis.
The Genomic Medicine program provides an interdisciplinary and state-of-the-art research environment for genetic, genomic, proteomic, and computational technologies to advance medicine. Faculty research interests cross multiple disciplines, including diabetes, autoimmunity, obesity, computational biology, cancer, and bioinformatics. The core curriculum provides the foundation to address complex biological problems using integrated high-throughput technologies.
Students will learn from experts how to use modern, high throughput technologies, in vitro and in vivo models, and patient data to study human diseases, create diagnostic tools, and develop new therapies. Contributing faculty expertise includes genomics, proteomics, molecular biology, drug discovery, computational biology, and bioinformatics. Our distinguished faculty teach how to approach fundamental and complex biological questions with these techniques in various research areas – from diabetes to cancer to vision research.
