Our Community

The Precision Genomics Collaboboratory coalesces genetic and genomic units all over Duke University and the Duke Health System.

Duke Molecular Physiology Institute

DMPI produces integrated multi-omics and physiologic profiles of chronic human diseases, and uses such profiles to develop new disease detection strategies, novel therapies, and insights into disease mechanisms.

Adult Cardiovascular Genetics Clinic

Duke's adult cardiovascular genetics clinic is led by nationally recognized experts who study the role genes play in heart disease. Our cardiologists diagnose and manage inherited heart disease, including hypertrophic cardiomyopathy, long QT syndrome, and Brugada syndrome. They work closely with genetic counselors who are specially trained to offer genetic testing and counseling for inherited heart diseases and vascular diseases. Their combined expertise ensures you and your family members receive the best counseling and medical care available.

Clinical Cancer Genetics

Duke’s hereditary cancer experts offer genetic testing and genetic counseling to people diagnosed with cancer, as well as people who may be at risk of developing cancer. Genetic counselors work closely with oncologists who are trained to diagnose and treat hereditary cancers, comprising five to 10 percent of all cancers. Genetic counseling can help guide treatment. Experts can clarify risks and offer expert counseling. Counselors help patients make informed decisions about treatment options and lifestyle changes.
