We are advancing genome science through cutting-edge pilot research projects funded by GEM. Researchers are partnering across disciplines and practices to investigate mechanistic connections between the airway microbiome and cancer, probiotics and obesity treatments, healthy pregnancy outcomes and the microbiome, and much more.

GEM wants you to know more about genomes so you can make better health decisions. This shifting and personalizing of medicine comes through research, education and community outreach.

Our Leadership

Executive Director Tim Murphy, Co-directors Norma Nowak and Jennifer Surtees, and the GEM Advisory Committee guide the community.

Our Challenge

Advancing understanding of the genome, the microbiome and their interaction with the environment, and using this knowledge to benefit humanity in a just, broad-based and responsible manner is a grand challenge of our time.
