Founding Director: Huntington F. Willard
When the Institute for Genome Sciences & Policy (IGSP) first opened its doors, the interdisciplinary institute was Duke's response to what was then a relatively new revolution. Genomics - viewed through the dual lenses of science and society - looks quite different now than it did in 2000, or even just a few years ago. The pace of discovery has quickened and the consequences for both individuals and society have grown deeper. The mission of the IGSP and its representative scientists, engineers, physicians, lawyers, policymakers, business leaders, ethicists, humanists and students to advance the genome sciences and consider their implications for science, health and society is arguably more critical than ever.
