Where: Salk Institute for Biological Studies
Host: Inder Verma

The genomic revolution is upon us, transforming basic biological research and the entire field of health care. The Helmsley Center for Genomic Medicine (HCGM) at the Salk Institute for Biological Studies in partnership with The Helmsley Charitable Trust was created to further our understanding of the deep genetic connections shared by chronic diseases. Although chronic illnesses manifest themselves in very different ways, they share similar genetic properties, suggesting closely related underlying biological processes. If we can understand the similarities between chronic illnesses at the genomic level, we can fundamentally transform the ways we study and treat these diseases. Knowledge of these key common activators will provide the framework for the development of novel therapies and regenerative tools to treat disease at the molecular level.
