Diagnostic & Research (D&R) Center for Human Genetics

Diagnostic & Research (D&R) Center for Human Genetics

The Genetic Counselling Center of the Diagnostic & Research Center for Human Genetics at the Medical University of Graz is settled at the ZWT. Several thousand consultations take place each year – for example, for pregnant women who want to know if their babies have a hereditary disease or people who have a family history of certain diseases or characteristics wanting to know if the cause is genetic.

The diagnosis is primarily based on a blood sample and, if necessary, other tissues are examined as well.

Research field/Range of products

Next to advice, diagnostic and teaching, the institute deals with applied research – one focus is on tumour diseases. A long-term objective: a widely applicable blood test for early detection.

Research cooperation

Cooperation with nationally and internationally renowned universities and research institutes, as well as large international pharmaceutical and medical technology companies.
