Mission and Diversity Statements

Mission statement

The mission of the Center for Genome Integrity is to foster interactions between clinical and basic science investigators interested in genome integrity and DNA repair, and promote the development of multi-investigator grants, shared resources, and translation of basic science into the clinic. The inclusion of clinical investigators will facilitate translation of basic science advances in cancer, aging, bone marrow failure, autoimmune disease, and host response to pathogens. Building upon the existing excellence at Washington University in St. Louis, our vision is to become a recognized world-class center for genome integrity research in the near future.

Diversity statement

The CGI is proud to represent a diverse sampling of science, perspectives, and people. From our executive leadership team to the trainees in our labs, we encourage inclusivity, open discussions, and understanding. Within the CGI, we celebrate differences and learn from one another. We are interested in recruiting members and trainees at all levels from backgrounds that are underrepresented in science.
