IU Health to Showcase Precision Genomics
INDIANAPOLIS - Indiana University Health will publicly debut a center Wednesday that houses the only program of its kind in the state. The Precision Genomics Program will be located in the IU Health Simon Cancer Center in Indianapolis and officials say will pave the way "for the future of personalized cancer care" by sequencing the entire genome of patients to develop targeted therapy.
The 7,500 square-foot facility will include six examination rooms, a genetic consultation room, plus patient clinical care, conference and office space. Nearly 600 patient cases were reviewed last year by the Precision Genomics Clinical Conference team. Financial details of the new center are not being disclosed.
