The Center for the Study of Medical Genetics, Faculty of Medicine, Padjadjaran University, was established in 2013 and chaired by prof.Dr.D.Sjarif. H. Effedy,dr.,SpA(K). and on February 1 2018 the head of the genetic study center was replaced by yunia Sribudiani, M.Sc., Ph.D and changed to a medical genetics study center. In 2014, several clinicians and researchers from various departments joined, including representatives from the departments of Biochemistry and Molecular Biology, Orthopedics, Pediatrics, Neurology, Clinical Pathology, Obstetrics and Gynecology, Oncology and Cardiology.
The research focus of the medical genetics study center is research on genetic diseases (genetic disorders) both in the form of congenital diseases (congenital from birth) and genetic diseases (genetic disorders) both in the form of congenital (congenital from childhood) and genetic diseases which are "Late onset" diseases" such as cancer and cataracts. Until now there are 13 research branches underway in the research umbrella of the medical genetics study center and consists of 20 researchers. Research collaboration has been initiated especially for research on Hirsschsprung's disease, the medical genetics study center and Fk Unpad joined with research centers from 6 other countries (USA, Netherlands, France, Italy, Spain and Hong Kong) at the international consortium for Hirschsprung Disease.
Becoming the Center for Development, Research and Application in the field of Medical Genetics on an international recognition.
- Carry out research based on advances in genetic science to be applied in diagnostics, prognostics and therapeutics.
- Identify potential national and international collaborators to carry out research collaborations.
- Dissemination of research results to scientific audiences (publications) and the public.
- Identify and collaborate potential sources of domestic and foreign funding for research projects.
