The lab has the following general goals: 1. To strengthen the scientific interactions between basic scientists and clinicians from the MSC and to enhance collaborations with international scientists working in molecular biology, human genetics, and infectious diseases; 2. To provide training, education, and support for the development of young scientists as well as established basic and clinical researchers with participation of internationally recognized leaders in the field; 3. To establish a centralized DNA, plasma and cell banking facility for storage of clinical samples from human blood or skin biopsies; 4. To provide basic services in molecular biology and human genetics; and 5. To initiate webcasting of training sessions in specialized areas in collaboration with the Center for Information Architecture in Research.
