The Division of Genetic Epidemiology at the University of Utah performs research which we hope will someday improve the lives of millions of people who are affected with common diseases each year. Our goal is to understand and identify the genetic origin of common diseases. Knowledge about inherited predisposition to diseases will lead to the ability of health care professionals to treat, and eventually prevent, these illnesses with greater success.
