The Iowa Institute of Human Genetics (IIHG) is dedicated to promoting clinical care, research and education focused on the medical and scientific significance of variation in the human genome. The IIHG serves as a statewide resource for outreach about issues related to understanding the extent and meaning of human DNA sequence variation.
The Institute is within the Roy J. and Lucille A. Carver College of Medicine, a highly ranked medical school where students learn to become accomplished clinicians and top-flight researchers and educators. Students come to Iowa to study medicine in a program that uses case-based learning as the basis of their education.
The College is part of University of Iowa Health Care—a fully integrated academic medical center, which also includes the University of Iowa Hospitals & Clinics, and University of Iowa Physicians, the largest multi-specialty group practice in Iowa. As the state’s only comprehensive academic medical center, UI Health Care is committed to world-class patient care, biomedical research, and medical education.
