Yale School of Medicine (YSM) seeks a strategic and collaborative leader to serve as the inaugural Director of the Center for Precision Medicine. This individual will also serve as Co-Director of the Center for Genomic Health. The founding Director will have the opportunity to articulate and execute on a vision for the newly created Center, taking advantage of the existing strengths at YSM in the Basic and Clinical Sciences.
Yale has a long history of excellence in genomics and its applications for understanding human disease. In 2019, the Yale Center for Genomic Health was established as a collaboration between YSM and YNHHS to facilitate the collection of patient specimens for sequencing of DNA through the Yale Center for Genomic Analysis. In May of 2022, YSM launched a College of American Pathologists (CAP)-certified centralized biorepository to standardize the collection of tissue, cells, and DNA across the Yale Academic Health System. YSM now seeks to build upon its genomic and analytic technologies combined with vast data resources to create a new Center for Precision Medicine. The Center will have a singular focus on improving the health of individuals and communities through translating basic discoveries into measurable and impactful innovations in providing care and prevention of human disease.
The new Director will be an accomplished, collaborative, and visionary scientist/physician scientist leader. They will have an established research program and an international reputation as a scientist or physician scientist in human genomics and precision medicine. They will possess the vision and experience to build upon a growing infrastructure for the implementation of precision medicine across the Yale New Haven Health System (YNHHS) and the region. Candidates with expertise in pharmacogenomics, genetic epidemiology, gene by environment interactions, and genetic ancestry and health disparities are encouraged to apply. The Director will also bring a passion and the skills to introduce new advances into the arenas of patient care as well the communities served by YSM, and to create partnerships with industry and other stakeholders.
