We are pleased to invite you to our inaugural Genomics@Wayne Symposium, October 28th, in the new cross-campus Integrative Biological Sciences Building IBio. Genomics@Wayne was initiated with the generous support of the Office of the Vice President of Research in January 2016. Our mission is to foster and accelerate growth of Next Generation Genomics in the state of Michigan by enhancing communication and collaboration of researchers, clinicians and educators within the University and our surrounding community.
