Established in 2008, the Boston University Genome Science Institute (GSI) seeks to expand our understanding of the role of genes in human health by fostering collaboration and serving as a resource for BU investigators engaged in genetics and genomics research and education.
The GSI spans both the Medical and the Charles River Campuses connecting a variety of investigators in departments and schools within the University. There are more than 120 GSI faculty members from the schools of Medicine, Public Health, Dental Medicine, and Arts and Sciences. The GSI unites these investigators through seminars, an annual Research Symposium, and other opportunities for formal and informal interaction among faculty and students. We work closely with the BU faculty to expand and strengthen training and research opportunities for BU students interested in genetics and genomics.
