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 6th largest children’s hospital in the U.S., which contributed $40 million to help establish the Institute.
Primary funding for our work —including the genomic sequencing of some patients—comes from philanthropy and grants.
Our people are the key to pioneering life-changing innovation. Strategic management for the Institute is provided by the Executive Team, with oversight from the Board of Directors and guidance from an independent Scientific Advisory Board.
As we continue our efforts to advance pediatric genomic medicine, there is growing recognition for our groundbreaking work, from speed records, to legislative proclamations, to grant awards and scientific distinctions.
We believe collaboration is critical in breaking down the barriers and helping to establish pediatric genomic medicine as the standard of care. Our San Diego location puts us at the center of the nation’s genomic eco-system, enabling us to partner with leading entities in life science research, healthcare and the genomic biotech industry, and tap into the expertise needed to propel our pioneering efforts.
Rady Children’s Institute for Genomic Medicine has assembled a stellar team of clinicians, bioinformaticians, laboratory scientists, genetic counselors, board-certified medical geneticists and other genomic specialists who thrive on applying their skills and experience to our life-changing mission.
Headquartered on the campus of Rady Children’s Hospital-San Diego, working for the Institute offers an opportunity to pioneer the future of genomic medicine. Candidates interested in applying for a position at the Institute are invited to view our current openings.
