Rady Children’s to Evaluate Scalability of Rapid WGS for 400 Known Genetic Diseases

Inside Precision Medicine

Already well known for its groundbreaking effort to rapidly diagnose and treat newborn children with rare, often life-threatening diseases, Rady Children’s Institute for Genomic Medicine (RCIGM) announced it has launched a novel program to evaluate the scalability of new diagnostic and precision medicine that screens for approximately 400 genetic diseases that have available treatment options.
