HudsonAlpha’s world-class scientists conduct genomic research, seeking the answers to the mysteries of disease in billions of base pairs of DNA. By using next-generation technologies, HudsonAlpha scientists are working toward improved diagnostics and development of personalized treatments and therapies, ultimately blazing a path toward prevention. 

Current research areas include :

  • Cancer (brain, breast, lung, ovarian, pancreatic, prostate)
  • Psychiatric disorders (major depression, bipolar disorder, schizophrenia)
