Genomic Sciences and Precision Medicine Center

Leading Personalized Healthcare

The Genomic Sciences and Precision Medicine Center at MCW has its roots in the launch of the Human Genome Project and the 1999 founding of the MCW Human and Molecular Genetics Center. The center uses state-of-the-art whole genome sequencing technologies to investigate how gene variants impact gene expression, define genetic variants associated with both rare and common disease, embryonic development, and the effects of environmental factors and drugs upon gene expression and disease.
