Expanding Genomic Knowledge

Shaping the Future of Rapid Precision Medicine

Connecting Discovery to Clinical Practice

Transforming pediatric healthcare through genomic sequencing requires more than just discovery and innovation. Training and mentoring a workforce in genomic medicine is vital to making genetic testing the standard of care. The Institute offers opportunities for researchers and clinicians to expand their genomic literacy and develop expertise in this burgeoning field.



Join us for the 2021 virtual Frontiers in Pediatric Genomic Medicine Conference: April 21-23, 2021, 8am-1pm PDT.



Advancing Precision Healthcare
We are shaping the future of genomic medicine in newborn care with educational offerings for neonatal intensive care unit teams provided by the Vermont Oxford Rady Children’s Genomic Network.



Inside Rapid Precision Medicine
In our monthly education series, top clinicians and researchers share how genomic sequencing is helping to diagnose rare conditions from infectious disease to pediatric brain disease. Register to watch the videos.
