At Rady Children’s Institute for Genomic Medicine (RCIGM), we are pushing the boundaries of science and engineering to speed answers and hope for newborns and children with rare, genetic diseases. By rapidly delivering genomic insights, we empower physicians with the information they need to provide precision care for the youngest and most fragile patients.

Prepare to Shape the Future: Explore innovations in rapid Whole Genome Sequencing through patient stories, case studies and discussions with leaders in research, industry and healthcare.
Sequencing to Save Lives,
Lower Cost of Healthcare
Our economic analysis shows using rapid Whole Genome Sequencing in the NICU to deliver precise diagnosis and guide treatment decreases infant mortality and the cost of hospitalization. Read our latest findings and news.
Speeding answers and hope
The Institute team is committed to expanding delivery of rapid precision medicine to children’s hospitals across the country. Our vision is to increase access to this life-saving technology to all children who need it.
From a single blood sample, RCIGM scientists can screen for thousands of rare genetic diseases to rapidly identify the root causes of a child’s condition and facilitate medical decision making.
Our laboratory is licensed and certified to perform clinical grade diagnostic testing via rapid Whole Genome Sequencing. The Institute has engineered a process to compress the time needed to sequence, analyze, interpret and deliver test results in just a few days.
CLINICAL GENOME CENTER
RCIGM was founded to build a research-to-bedside genomic sequencing pipeline, with the goal of making genetic screening fast, easy and routine for diagnosing and delivering precision medicine to acutely ill babies and children.
“Our daughter was just a few days old when she received a life-saving diagnosis through genomic testing.”

Rady Children’s Institute for Genomic Medicine was founded as a non-profit organization in 2014 through a transformational pledge of $120 million from Ernest and Evelyn Rady. The Institute is embedded within Rady Children’s Hospital-San Diego, the nation’s 6th largest children’s hospital. All of our work and testing is funded by philanthropy and grants.
The Institute team includes board-certified medical geneticists, bioinformaticians, software engineers, clinical laboratory scientists, genetic counselors, and physicians who channel their expertise to advance genomic pediatric medicine.
