Since its inception in 1999, the W. Harry Feinstone Center for Genomic Research has evolved into a major research and educational Center supporting numerous faculty and programs across the University of Memphis as well as regional and national research communities. The Center has become a hub for collaborative research, high-tech equipment and unique educational programs.
Interdisciplinary and Inter-institutional Research and Education
One of the primary goals of the Center for Genomic Research is to develop an Interdisciplinary Research Program. The driving force behind such a program is to leverage the Center's resources to increase the research and training environment of the University of Memphis. By emphasizing interdisciplinary research, it is hoped that the Center can aid in the development and strengthening of University of Memphis educational programs that in turn support graduate research.
