The COBRE program seeks to build a sustained interdisciplinary center in personalized medicine by engaging local partners, building genomics and bioinformatic analysis infrastructure, and conducting human genetics research. The center will create an environment that cultivates the career development of new investigators, increases our understanding of personalized medicine, builds research capacity to grow clinical genetics research, education, and medical genetic services in Nevada.
Genome Acquisition and Analysis Core
The Genome Acquisition and Analysis core is designed to help and support individual projects to acquire genomics and genetics data and integrate these data for the projects so that each project can accomplish its goals in personalized characterization and analysis of focused health issues.
The Nevada Institute of Personalized Medicine (NIPM) believes that applied genetics and genomics can improve individual and systemic health care through translational clinical scientific research, workforce education and training, commercialization of technologies, job creation and clinical genetics services. The Nevada Institute of Personalized Medicine is the only established Center of Excellence for Personalized Medicine in Nevada that is endorsed by the National Institutes of Health.
We are fortunate to have a team that has attracted state and federal grant funding from many sources, but government dollars just don’t stretch far enough in this world of cutting-edge science. By making a gift to NIPM, you can help revolutionize health care in our state.
NIPM is working with the local community and national partners involved in personalized medicine as well as commercial partners such as those involved in big data computation needed to analyze many human genomes that can help us achieve our goals in impacting personalized medicine.
