Genomics research offers a pathway toward conquering disease by learning how the human genome works. Genomics involves the study of all of an organism's genes, and using that information to make a diagnosis or develop a treatment or cure. This allows doctors to tailor medication and treatments to a person's specific needs, resulting in precision medicine for each individual.
Researchers in the Institute for Systems Genomics seek to discover the precise genomic causes of disease and to develop individualized diagnostics, treatments, and cures for autism, schizophrenia, and other behavioral disorders, including addictions.
By making a gift to the Institute for Systems Genomics Fund, you can support this work and the promise that personalized medicine holds to revolutionize the future medicine by tailoring treatment to the individual characteristics, needs, and preferences of a patient during all stages of care.
