CIM CON — What is the impact on health care of genome editing?

By Colette Gallagher colettegallagher

Although Mayo Clinic does not use genome editing as part of any treatment in the medical practice, genome editing has promise for treating and even curing previously intractable disorders, such as Duchenne muscular dystrophy. Genome editing, via methods like CRISPR-Cas9 (clustered regularly interspaced short palindromic repeats and CRISPR-associated protein) can be used to facilitate the […]

CIM Con day two: Unlocking the mystery of rare diseases

By Susan Buckles susanbuckles

The Human Genome Project —the first mapping of a person’s genetic blueprint — has unlocked mysteries of rare diseases that for ages bewildered medical science. Completed just 15 years ago, the Human Genome Project has ushered in a new era of individualized medicine. That has significantly advanced the ability to diagnose rare diseases, many of […]

Preemptive genetic testing: could it help you take charge of your health?

By Sharon Rosen sharonhrosen

A blood pressure check, an immunization and a cholesterol test – these are all parts of your routine medical care. Someday, a genetic test to identify your risk for developing disease may also be added to the list. In fact, researchers believe that day is fast approaching thanks to the rapid advances in genomic medicine. […]

Tool of the trade: researcher applies artificial intelligence to uncover causes, risks for disease

By Sharon Rosen sharonhrosen

Some diseases, such as certain breast and colon cancers, are linked to genetic mutations passed down in families. But for many other diseases there are no direct genetic links that explain why the disease develops. That’s why Manolis Kellis, Ph.D. and his team are using artificial intelligence to uncover the hidden cause of disease. Dr. […]

A clearer picture: new imaging technologies advance diagnosis, individualized care

By Sharon Rosen sharonhrosen

When treating patients with cancer, one of the most challenging questions that physicians face is determining whether a tumor should be surgically removed immediately, or if it can be monitored over the course of time without performing surgery. Imaging tests – such as a CT scan or MRI – are essential tools that clinicians rely […]
