About Us

The Department of Human Genetics at McGill was established in 1993. Our department inherited a varied and thriving program of research and teaching in Human Genetics that overgrew the boundaries of other traditional departments in the science and medical faculties. Much of the current research work performed by the faculty of the Department of Human Genetics occurs in laboratories located at university-affiliated hospitals reflecting the understanding that there is much that genetics can contribute to, and learn from, the study of that part of human inheritance and variation presenting as disease.
