Leading the Way with the 100,000 Genome Project

By Jeff Briggs JeffreyBriggs

England has always been a leader in genomic research and precision medicine. Working at Cavendish Laboratory at the University of Cambridge, England, American biologist James Watson and English physicist Francis Crick discovered the structure of DNA in the 1950s, with the help of some crucially important X-ray crystallography work by English researchers Rosalind Franklin and […]

Improve Outcomes with Clinical Application of Pharmacogenomics

By Jeff Briggs JeffreyBriggs

  Your genes determine a lot about how you look. They also play a key role in how medications work in your body. We call that pharmacogenomics — the tailoring of drug treatments to an individual’s genetic makeup. Faithful readers of the Center for Individualized Medicine’s blog know that we have repeatedly come back to […]

Improving Clinical Outcomes by Looking at Individual Response to Drug Therapies

By Jeff Briggs JeffreyBriggs

Pharmacogenomics — prescribing medications based on a person’s genomic information — is one area of precision medicine that can offer an immediate impact on improving a patient’s care.  People metabolize different drugs at different rates, some faster, some slower.  On occasion, a specific drug may have devastating consequences to a patient.  Pharmacogenomics, or PGx as we […]

The Genome, Autism and More Genomes

By Jeff Briggs JeffreyBriggs

In 2014, about one in every 68 children in the U.S. was diagnosed as being on the autism spectrum. A neurodevelopmental disorder often characterized by impaired social interaction, verbal and non-verbal communication, and restricted and repetitive behavior, autism is known to have no single cause but it’s been known for some time that the disorder […]

Kathy Giusti: The Cancer Patient Who Became an Advocate for Precision Medicine

By Jeff Briggs JeffreyBriggs

How do we make personalized cancer care a reality for more patients than ever before — not years from now, but today? That has been the mission of Kathy Giusti since 1996 when she was diagnosed with multiple myeloma, a rare form of blood cancer.  With no proven treatments at the time for multiple myeloma, […]
