The most profound scientific revolutions have a transforming quality; they change not only science and society, but also how we view our place in the world: Copernicus, Newton, the Industrial Revolution, the agricultural revolution, the nuclear age, and the space age have all been far reaching. Each one has, in its time, effected pervasive social change and raised a host of new scientific and social challenges. Now it is time for the Genome Revolution.
We are dedicated to the study of life through scientific inquiry involving interdisciplinary research in genome sciences and policy. We are a passionate supporter and facilitator of campus-wide research and scholarship that explore the impact of genome sciences on all aspects of life, human health and social policy.
Our passion for the implications of genome sciences on humanity, our interdisciplinary approach to its study, our commitment to education at all levels, and our dual focus on policy as well as science - these are what set the IGSP apart.
