About Us

The Institute for Genomic Medicine is driving innovation in genomic medicine through cutting-edge research, clinical applications and outreach efforts. Our multi-tiered approach to genomic medicine utilizes large scale genomic sequencing and analysis, paired with functional biology to advance the diagnosis, characterization, and treatment of genetic diseases.   As part of Columbia University's overall Precision Medicine Initiative, we are fully integrated into the research and clinical communities at Columbia University and NewYork-Presbyterian, and will utilize our expertise in genome sequencing, disease biology, and electronic medical records to develop and advance patient-centered precision medicine.
