About the institution

The Cen­ter for Genomics and Sys­tems Biol­o­gy (CGSB) at New York Uni­ver­si­ty Abu Dhabi (NYUAD) was estab­lished over a decade to pro­vide a nexus for cut­ting-edge life sci­ences research in the Unit­ed Arab Emi­rates, with world-class facil­i­ties and resources to pro­mote inno­v­a­tive advances in genomics and sys­tems biol­o­gy. The Cen­ter fos­ters and enhances the research and train­ing mis­sions of NYUAD, where under­grad­u­ate stu­dents, grad­u­ate stu­dents, and post­doc­tor­al sci­en­tists engage in research across dis­ci­plines, facil­i­tat­ed by advanced instru­men­ta­tion and com­pu­ta­tion­al sup­port for high-through­put data col­lec­tion, visu­al­iza­tion, and analy­sis. The NYUAD CGSB oper­ates in part­ner­ship with its sis­ter cen­ter, NYU Biology’s CGSB, in New York, in an open orga­ni­za­tion­al frame­work that enables trans­for­ma­tive col­lab­o­ra­tive work across the globe, sup­port­ed by joint tech­nol­o­gy and ser­vice platforms.
