Center for Molecular Medicine

Molecular medicine proceeds from the principle that many diseases have at their root a small number of molecular mechanisms, which if properly understood, could be efficiently targeted with appropriate therapeutics. Researchers in the Center for Molecular Medicine apply this principle to diseases ranging from atherosclerosis to neurodegeneration by conducting biomedical research directed at defining the fundamental molecular mechanisms underlying human disease, developing a range of animal and cell based models of human diseases, including patient-specific induced pluripotent stem cells (iPS cells), and implementing mechanism-guided clinical studies designed to provide insight regarding underlying disease mechanisms or test proof-of principle therapeutic approaches.
