The Medical Research Council Human Genetics Unit, a partner in the MRC Institute of Genetics and Molecular Medicine at The University of Edinburgh, is at the forefront of research into human genetics.
Its mission is to understand the role of genes and the genome in normal development and physiology and how changes in genome sequence impact on human health and disease. The Unit's programmes of work cover the themes of rare and common disease genetics, gene regulation and genome stability.
