Rowe Program in Human Genetics
The Rowe Program with support from the Albert Holmes Rowe Endowment was launched in the summer of 1996, as a joint venture of the School of Medicine and the Division of Biologic Sciences.
The program is dedicated to the development of a multidisciplinary approach towards understanding the molecular genetic mechanisms that underlie the pathophysiology of human disease. Its mission is to promote biomedical genetic research and education at UC Davis.
At its core, the faculty is focused on several different and complementary approaches to defining genes, mechanisms and pathways that are important in disease susceptibility or pathogenesis utilizing both human subject based investigations or model organisms. The faculty have appointments in five different departments in the Medical School or University further emphasizing the integrative approach of this program.
