With precision medicine heating up, Genome Medical …

Precision medicine is gaining steamas consumers and healthcare organizations get up to speed with what promises to be a new paradigm in wellness care delivery. Consider the genetic testing startup 23andMe, which just landed $250 million in funding this past September. That financing brings the total capital raised by the company to $491 million as the kits become more popular. Continue reading

Personalized Medicine | Moffitt

Even though cancers may be found in the same part of the body and look similar under the microscope, we now understand that they can be quite different. That difference often appears in how that tumor type responds to therapy. Increasingly, that variation in response to treatment can reflect the changes that are found in the DNA of the tumor. Continue reading

Genetic Medicine – University of Chicago – Department of …

Yoav Gilad, PhD Chief, Section of Genetic Medicine University of ChicagoDepartment of Medicine The Section of Genetic Medicine was created over 10 years ago to both build research infrastructure in genetics within the Department of Medicine and to focus translational efforts related to genetics. As a result, the Section of Genetic Medicine is shaping the future of precision medicine with very active and successful research programs focused on the quantitative genetics, systems biology and genomics, and bioinformatics and computational biology. The Section provides extremely valuable collaborations with investigators in the Department of Medicine who are seeking to develop new and more powerful ways to identify genetic risk factors for common, complex disorders with almost immediate clinical application Continue reading

The Next Generation of Genetic Medicine: A Review of Epigenetics – Labiotech.eu (blog)

The field of genetics has long been an object of global fascination, beginning with Mendels pea plant experiments in the 19th century and peaking when the human genome was sequenced (albeit not completely) in 2003. But epigenetics as the next level up from genetics is still mysterious to most. Efforts are already underway to make this next leap in our therapeutic understanding of DNA to unlock the potential of epigenetics Continue reading
