Researchers optimize genetic tests for diverse populations

Improved genetic tests more accurately assess disease risk regardless of genetic ancestry and are therefore less likely to contribute to health disparities.
FOR GRANT SEEKERS

To accelerate genomics research, we support scientists at public and private institutions around the world.

“Collaboration and teamwork ensure that our genomic advances improve health for all humans. ”
