Genetics

Many of the faculty in the Pulmonary, Critical Care, Allergy and Immunologic Diseases Section conduct leading research with Wake Forest’s Center for Human Genomics, which was established in June 2000.

Its primary purpose is to investigate genetic mechanisms in the development and progression of complex human diseases, including cardiovascular disease, diabetes, prostate cancer and pulmonary diseases such as allergies and asthma.

Many of the genetic studies conducted with the Center focus on genetics and the inheritance of asthma, as well as the evaluation of effective treatments for this disease.
