Welcome! I am Thomas E. Wilson, M.D. Ph.D., Professor of Pathology and Human Genetics at the University of Michigan Medical School.
I am a molecular genetic pathologist active in the clinic with related research interests that include basic studies of yeast double-strand break repair, mechanisms of mammalian chromosomal instability, genomic technologies in core facilities, and bioinformatics, including projects aimed at standardizing and sharing data analysis tools.
Education and mentorship of diverse trainees is critical to our mission and I direct classes and UROP and other research projects related to molecular genetics, translational research, and bioinformatics.
Please explore these pages to learn more about our goals to advance understanding of the genetic processes that cause mutations associated with human diseases by detecting them in the clinical laboratory, exploring their mechanisms in the research laboratory, and developing resources to help students and other researchers do the same.
