CIDR joins with clinical genomic expertise to form Johns Hopkins Genomics


Johns Hopkins Genomics is a joint effort of the McKusick-Nathans Institute of Genetic Medicine and the Department of Pathology at Johns Hopkins. Johns Hopkins Genomics combines research units including the Center for Inherited Disease Research (CIDR) and the Genetic Resources Core Facility (GRCF) with clinical operations including the DNA Diagnostic Laboratory, the Molecular Pathology Laboratory. Johns Hopkins Genomics is staffed with clinical molecular geneticists, bioinformaticists, statistical geneticists, clinical geneticists and molecular pathologists in a new building in the East Baltimore BioPark adjacent to the medical school campus.
