Our Mission

Educating the next generation of researchers and health providers in genomics and precision medicine is part of the fabric of our values at the Duke Center for Precision Medicine. From post-doctoral training programs in genomic research to undergraduate individual and team projects and summer programs, we are committed to providing extraordinary mentorship and educational experiences to future genomic researchers, educators, and clinicians. 

Susanne Haga, PhD is the Co-Director of the Genomic Medicine Post-doctoral Training Program and oversees the educational mission of the Duke Precision Medicine Program.

Post doc in lab

Duke Post-Doctoral Training in Genomic Medicine Research Program provides training in a fast-growing field marked by the advent of new technologies, increased use of clinical genomic medicine, and large-scale federally- and privately-funded research efforts.

undergraduate guidance

The Duke Precision Medicine Program is pleased to work with undergraduate students interested in gaining first-hand experience about applied genomics and precision medicine. Programs, such as the Snyderman Scholars and Summer Scholars in Genome Sciences & Medicine, are available.

Precision Medicine Forum

The Duke Precision Medicine Program Forum Series features speakers from Duke and beyond working on innovative research in clinical, translational, and basic sciences. The forum is open to attendees internal and external to Duke. 

2022 Summer Scholars Officially Kicks off

The Duke Center for Genomic and Computational Biology (GCB) and the Center for Precision Medicine has partnered once again with North Carolina Central University (NCCU) for the Summer Scholars Program in Genome Sciences and Medicine, welcoming students to Durham, North Carolina.

T32 Post-Doc Katherine Collins is first author of a new publication on personalized lifestyle interventions

Katherine Collins, PhD, one of the current Duke Center for Applied Genomics & Precision Medicine’s post-doctoral fellows in genomic medicine research, published a paper in the Translational Journal of the American College of Sports Medicine (TJACSM) characterizing the timing and self-reported determinants of exercise intervention dropout among sedentary adults with overweight or obesity. The study also sought to explore variations in adherence among individuals who completed the 6- to 8-month structured exercise intervention.
