NYU, Sarah Lawrence launch genome health analysis program

New York City-based NYU Grossman School of Medicine and Bronxville, N.Y.-based Sarah Lawrence College are piloting a master's program in genome health analysis.

The program will focus on the analysis of genetic information in human cells for application in clinical care, according to a Jan. 3 news release from New York City-based NYU Langone Health. The students will learn to identify and interpret genetic codes of patients to quantify disease risks and predict an individual's response to treatments. 

Aravinda Chakravarti, PhD, director of the Center for Human Genetics and Genomics at NYU Langone, and Kelly Ruggles, PhD, director of masters education at the Vilcek Institute of Graduate Biomedical Sciences at NYU Langone, will serve as senior advisers and administrators of the program, according to the release.
