Why Medical Genomics?
Genomics is a rapidly growing field, with implications reaching from the bench to the bedside. The fast-paced nature of this field is creating a widening knowledge gap between cutting-edge genomics research and current clinical practices. An emerging need for laboratory professionals and clinicians to generate, integrate, and interpret genetic and genomic data is driving new healthcare and patient management era. The new clinical field of Medical Genomics is an integral component of this vision for a vibrant academic healthcare system.
