Among genetics departments at U.S. medical schools, the Department of Molecular and Human Genetics at Baylor College of Medicine (https://www.bcm.edu/departments/molecular-and-human-genetics/) ranks first in both number of grants and total funding from the National Institutes of Health (NIH). The Department of Molecular and Human Genetics provides a fully integrated environment for physicians and basic scientists, promoting a cross-species approach to functional genetics and a commitment to technology transfer. Activities within the Department include clinical genetics, basic and clinical research, a joint venture diagnostic laboratory, long-standing association with an NIH large scale human genome sequencing centers, medical student teaching, an MS Genetic Counseling program, a Ph.D. graduate program, and residency/fellowship training in medical genetics. 

 

The Department has over $100 million in total research funding, 70 primary tenured and tenure-track research faculty members and a total of 140 primary faculty members, who are engaged in a variety of missions including basic and translational research, clinical diagnostic services, and prenatal, pediatric, and adult clinical care. To expand our translational impact, we established a uniquely structured and governed joint venture diagnostic laboratory, Baylor Genetics, and a Baylor College of Medicine/Chinese University of Hong Kong Center for Medical Genetics in Hong Kong that together has expanded our clinical, diagnostic, and educational mission to a world-wide audience. 

Faculty will have an opportunity to interact with the vigorous ABMGG residency and clinical laboratory fellowship training programs that include over 40 clinical and diagnostic laboratory faculty and over 40 genetic counseling faculty and staff.  The training programs attract four to six individuals per year for resident training in categorical Medical Genetics, Combined Pediatrics/Medical Genetics, Combined Internal Medicine/Medical Genetics, and Maternal Fetal Medicine/Medical Genetics, as well as three to four individuals for ABMGG-approved clinical laboratory fellowship training in the following areas: clinical biochemical genetics and laboratory genetics and genomics.

The Department staffs clinical genetics programs at Texas Children’s Hospital, Baylor St. Luke’s Medical Center, Harris Health System, and the Michael E. DeBakey Veteran Affairs Medical Center
