USC Institute for Genetic Medicine

USC Institute for Genetic Medicine


The USC Institute for Genetic Medicine (IGM) is a place where researchers work closely together in a shared space to approach problems of the highest impact to human health.  The IGM houses the offices and laboratories of a group of leading faculty members from the University of Southern California (USC).  IGM scientists, engineers and clinicians take a multidisciplinary approach using molecular, genetic, ‘omics, and computational technologies in human and genetic models.   

The IGM is administered as a department reporting to the Dean of the Keck School of Medicine of USC. It is part of the USC Health Sciences Campus, located on the east side of Los Angeles.

The IGM comprises 21 faculty members. The department is an important research training ground for USC, and typically supports about 50 trainees at any one time. Including scientific and administrative staff, the total number of people working within the IGM hovers around 110 individuals.

 IGM research is funded by federal, state, and industry-sponsored grants, as well as gifts from donors and benefactors.  The major sponsor is the National Institutes of Health (NIH). The Center for Applied Molecular Medicine (CAMM) within the IGM holds a Physical Sciences in Oncology Center (PS-OC) grant from the NIH’s National Cancer Institute.
