Research being done in Genetics, Genomics and Development (GGD) at Cornell University embraces cutting edge technologies, applied in a wide variety of experimental systems, to advance our understanding of fundamental biological mechanisms in the context of both normal and disease processes. The GGD graduate community is made up of faculty and students who are making a significant impact in scientific research. Whether it be publishing papers, exhibiting posters, presenting at conferences or training all levels of students in science, members of our community are not only pushing the boundaries of knowledge forward but also inspiring others to join the path of scientific discovery.
