Dear visitor,

welcome on behalf of the team of the Institute for Human Genetics and Genomic Medicine.

On the following pages you will find information on our human genetic counseling service as well as on the accredited cytogenetic and molecular genetic diagnostics.

Human genetics has developed rapidly through the use of new molecular techniques such as high-throughput sequencing and advancing possibilities in bioinformatics and offers state-of-the-art diagnostics for genetic disorders.

It is a central concern of ours to introduce these new possibilities into the care of patients with genetic diseases and to use them for our research projects within the framework of our scientific activities.

Yours sincerely

Univ.-Prof. Dr. med. Ingo Kurth
Director of the Institute for Human Genetics and Genomic Medicine
