Institute for Genetic Medicine
About the Institute
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.
