Their mission is to make transformative discoveries, by applying cutting-edge epigenomic technologies to critical basic and clinical research questions, that can significantly improve our knowledge of human biology and disease.
The identity is an abstract representation of histones, which act as spools for DNA to wrap around, and play a role in gene regulation. The modern and simplified aesthetic disrupts the overly-complicated category, and reflects their position at the forefront of research.
