Rady Children’s Institute for Genomic Medicine is transforming pediatric care. We are striving for a future where all children and families facing pediatric rare disease have access to life-changing genomic medicine.
Our ability to improve the lives of critically ill newborns and children is made possible, in large part, through the generous support of individual, corporate and community donors.
By investing in the Institute, our philanthropic partners empower us to expand access to Rapid Precision Medicine™ to children and families nationwide. Your generosity helps make possible innovative discoveries to develop new therapies for devastating pediatric diseases.
The Institute’s groundbreaking work is a testament to the incredible power of philanthropy. In 2014, Ernest Rady and his family made an extraordinary investment in the health and well-being of children through their generous donation to establish the Rady Children’s Institute for Genomic Medicine.
Capitalizing on San Diego’s rich bio-tech landscape, the Rady family’s transformative generosity is paving the way for a radical breakthrough in pediatric health.
