The Edison Family Center for Genome Sciences & Systems Biology is home to an interdisciplinary, multi-departmental, multi-generational team of investigators from multiple schools who focus on comparative genomics, statistical genomics, and systems biology.

The Center strives to catalyze development and application of new analytic methods for studying the major disease franchises embraced by BioMed 21.

It helps sponsor development of key infrastructure elements so as to allow rapid evolution of computational biology at WU.

It serves as ‘proving ground’ for developing new strategies for educating students and faculty who wish to work at the interface of the biological, physical, computational and engineering sciences.

The Edison Family Center for Genome Sciences & Systems Biology occupies space on the 4th and 5th floors of the Debra and George W. Couch III Biomedical Research Building at 4515 McKinley Avenue. Completed in late 2015, the six floors of Couch Biomedical are a dedicated research home to several Departments and Centers of the Washington University School of Medicine.
