Welcome

The International Center for Genetic Disease (iCGD) is a platform that focuses on the analysis of patients and healthy subjects from different parts of the world for research into the causes and consequences, prevention, and treatment of disease. The iCGD brings together world-class clinicians and scientists and an unmatched dedication to multidisciplinary research, cutting-edge technology, and innovative methods. We also implement research, education, and clinical programs to build sustainable capacity in genomic medicine and in genetic research, with the aim of contributing to improved public health.
