Clinical Collaboration

With a foundation of cutting-edge scientific facilities at the USC Keck School of Medicine, our renowned team of researchers and physicians is collaborating to realize the potential of genome based medicine with the understanding that these advances will be made from and serve the diverse clinical populations that will make up the future of healthcare.


Welcome to USC's Institute of Translational Genomics

“We are deeply committed to excellence in translational genomics research, bringing to bear vast experience and expertise in molecular genetics, genome science, biomedical informatics, translational science, and molecular medicine. Our ultimate goal is to serve the Keck community by bridging basic and clinical research through discovery and validation of novel diagnostics and therapeutics for earlier diagnosis and smarter treatments.”

John D. Carpten, Ph.D.
Director, Institute of Translational Genomics


Our institute strives to make healthcare smarter, based on a vision that future advances in personalized medicine will build from, benefit, and ultimately serve an incredibly diverse set of individuals. We believe that advancing precision medicine to affect a diverse set of populations requires diversity in leadership. Our members and scientists span diverse backgrounds and experience, and collectively we are committed to integrating these together to improve lives by combining the best genome science with the best clinical care. Members come from both within the Department of Translational Genomics, as well as others departments and affiliates.



John Carpten serves director of the Institute of Translational Genomics, building a collaborative effort to redefine and further precision medicine. Carpten is an award-winning genomic scientist who is renowned for his key discoveries and contributions in the fields of cancer genetics and genomics.


David W. Craig serves as co-director of the Institute of Translational Genomics.  He brings expertise in bioinformatics and large data analytics under a goal of bridging these expertise to create a world-class training environment for the next-generation of physician-scientist-informaticians.  Reaching these goals requires a world-class medical school, state-of-the-art biotechnology, and informatics infrastructure.
