The Translational Genomics Research Institute is dedicated to conducting groundbreaking research with life changing results. TGen is focused on helping patients with neurological disorders, cancer, diabetes, and infectious diseases through cutting edge, translational, bench-to-bedside research. TGen physicians and scientists work to unravel the genetic components of both common and rare complex diseases in adults and children.
