The National Human Genome Research Institute and its partners are organizing a social media campaign from June 6-10, 2022, that focuses on healthcare provider genomics education.
The Duke Center for Genomic and Computational Biology (GCB) and the Center for Precision Medicine has partnered once again with North Carolina Central University (NCCU) for the Summer Scholars Program in Genome Sciences and Medicine, welcoming students to Durham, North Carolina
Wu is an internal medicine physician and health services researcher at Duke with an emphasis on precision medicine.
There are two Snyderman Scholars this summer, Jiung (Peter) Nam and Paul Tongji Kim.
Join your fellow team members to renew your own well-being and our mutual commitment to Moments to Movement during one of four virtual sessions offered on May 25th.
Sarah Heston, MD, and Nathan Bihlmeyer, PhD, will graduate the Post-Doctoral Training in Genomic Medicine Research Program at the end of June.
