Towards Precision Medicine: Dr. Euan Ashley Shares His Vision for Advancing Individualized Patient Care

By Sharon Rosen Sharon Rosen (@sharonhrosen)

How can the rapid advances in DNA sequencing technologies and genomic discoveries that have occurred over the past decade be used to  improve patient care for a broader range of conditions and diseases? While many genetic causes for disease have been identified, can researchers adapt technologies and analytical methods to make even more discoveries that […]

Navigating a Genetic Maze for Clues to Solve a Mystery: The challenges and rewards of genetic counseling

By Sharon Rosen Sharon Rosen (@sharonhrosen)

Article by Colette Rector, Public Affairs Updated Nov. 2018 All of us walk around with billions of pieces of genetic information stored in our DNA. This information explains everything from our eye color to the shapes of our faces to the length of our bones. If sequenced and understood, genetics can also point to the […]

Meeting the Genomic Data Challenge: New Collaboration Speeds Precision Medicine Discovery

By Sharon Rosen Sharon Rosen (@sharonhrosen)

Each of us has a unique genetic makeup of more than three billion molecules that are the building blocks for our DNA. These building blocks create the blueprint for everything from our eye color to how our body functions, how we process medications and how likely we are to contract disease. Because of today’s DNA […]

5 Things You Need to Know about Genetic Testing

By Jeff Briggs Jeff Briggs (@JeffreyBriggs)

When you provide just one sample of your DNA, researchers are able to use it to learn more about your health history, assess your chances of contracting certain diseases and even gain a better understanding of the importance family history can play in your health outlook. It sounds futuristic, but it is all very real. […]

Next-Generation Sequencing: Targeted Panels Versus Whole Exome Sequencing

By Jeff Briggs Jeff Briggs (@JeffreyBriggs)

  Next-generation sequencing is becoming more prominent in the clinical laboratory, something we reported on recently on the Center for Individualized Medicine blog. With its unprecedented throughput, scalability, and speed, next-generation sequencing enables researchers to study biological systems at a level never before possible. Today’s complex genomic research questions demand a depth of information beyond […]

Trailblazer Genomic Scientist to be Keynote Speaker at 2015 Individualizing Medicine Conference

By Jeff Briggs Jeff Briggs (@JeffreyBriggs)

One of the world’s leading geneticists, J. Craig Venter, Ph.D., has innovated and infuriated in equal measure. He may be best known for being the first person to sequence his own genome, back in 2001, but his accomplishments in genomics reach far and wide—often with controversy attached. Leaving Newport, Calif., and the Southern California surfing scene, […]

Conquering Cancer: New Strategies through Individualized Medicine

By Jeff Briggs Jeff Briggs (@JeffreyBriggs)

Everyone’s life has been affected by cancer. Everyone’s. Many people are cancer survivors. Others are family or friends of someone who has fought the disease. But nobody has escaped the terrible burden cancer brings to our lives. Perhaps this is why so many physicians and researchers around the world have dedicated their lives to eradicating […]
