The mission of the UCSF Genomic Medicine Initiative is to seamlessly transition the latest techniques from the UCSF research community into patient care, giving patients access to international experts in genomic medicine.
The Genomic Medicine Initiative is a UCSF-wide effort established by the Chancellor and Dean — an interdepartmental, interdisciplinary effort harnessing knowledge and experience across a large number of departments and research groups, which blends the providers and services of these departments into an efficient, knowledgeable team.
What can GMI do for Me?
I am a Patient
Your case will be reviewed by cutting-edge experts in their fields, and your doctor will have immediate access to everyone involved in producing your genomic information.
I am a Physician The GMI can connect you to information from patients with rare disorders, and provide access to our interdisciplinary team.
I am a Scientist
The GMI can connect you to the patient population related to your area of research.
We are proud to announce the launch of the Genomic Medicine Initiative at UCSF, representing the nation’s first effort of its kind to provide the tools for physicians to make clinical decisions based on each patient’s genetics. This is a tremendous step towards making that genetic information useful for physicians and their patients, and a major advance in UCSF’s efforts toward making precision medicine a reality.
