- Center of Medical Genetics, Sir Ganga Ram Hospital, New Delhi: The Center of Medical Genetics is one of the leading centers for genetic services in India. The center includes a clinical section along with four large laboratories providing HLA typing, molecular, cytogenetic and biochemical diagnostic services. The center has a group of scientists and clinicians who are continuously striving for excellence in counseling, management, testing and prenatal diagnosis of genetic disorders. Genetic testing for personalizing treatment in cancer, mutation studies in familial cancer, molecular diagnosis of many metabolic and genetic disorders is provided as laboratory service. Research finds an important place in the activities of the center. Many projects completed in the past have added new information on genetic disorders in India. Examples include the molecular analysis of cystic megalencephaly, fragile X syndrome, genotype-phenotype correlations in thalassemia, and polymorphisms and mutations in albinism, Wilson disease, and Crigler-Najjar syndrome. The center also has an ongoing DBT funded Ph.D and genetic fellowship program. Combination of clinical and research expertise allows the department to bring basic research from the bench to the bedside.
- Department of Human Genetics, Emory University, Atlanta, USA : The Department of Human Genetics at Emory University School of Medicine ranks in the top 10 departments in USA. The majority of the research in the department focuses directly on human genetic disease. It has major strengths in neurogenetics, metabolic disease, and translational research. The department is home to the National Down Syndrome Project and a National Fragile X Syndrome Research Center. Within the department are three large clinical laboratories providing cytogenetic, biochemical and molecular diagnostics. The unique combination of a fully-fledged basic research faculty along with the comprehensive clinical genetics division, places this department at the forefront of contemporary translational research and predictive health.
- Indo-UK Genetic Education Forum: Indo UK education forum is a collaborative effort between Indian genetic units and Cardiff University in U.K. to update the doctors and scientists of the recent advances in the field of medical genetics.
- Indian Academy of Medical Genetics: Indian Academy of Medical Genetics is established with the aim of supporting and stimulating patient care, education and research in the field of medical genetics and implement methods of diagnosis, treatment and prevention of genetic disease in India. The academy serves as a forum for medical geneticists to discuss the issues pertaining to their professional activity and to promote and coordinate research in the field of medical genetics. The academy also co-ordinates with the government agencies, corporate bodies, institutions, societies, associations and groups which pursue similar activities and will increase the access of general public to medical genetics services in India.
