OUR MISSION

The NYUAD-CGSB was established to provide a nexus for cutting-edge life sciences research in the Emirates, with world-class facilities and resources to promote innovative advances in genomics and systems biology. The Center fosters and enhances the research and training missions of NYUAD, where undergraduate students, graduate students, and postdoctoral scientists engage in research across disciplines, facilitated by advanced instrumentation and computational support for high-throughput data collection, visualization, and analysis. The NYUAD-CGSB operates in partnership with its sister center, NYU Biology’s CGSB in New York, in an open organizational framework that enables transformative collaborative work across the globe supported by joint technology and service platforms.

We work closely with our sister center in New York to provide seamless access to our resources and expert staff in both campuses. The NYUNY Genomics Core Facility (GenCore) is a state of the art genomics facility enabling high throughput genome sequencing, proteomics and quantitative analyses.
