Affiliates and Partnerships

NIPM is working with community and national partners that can help us achieve our goals in impacting personalized medicine. These include local partners in our community such as those involved in clinical care. We are forming alliances with national partners and university medical centers involved in personalized medicine as well as commercial partners such as those involved in "big data computation needed to analyze many human genomes.

SWITCH Communications

To analyze the many large human genomes needed for personalized medicine, we need access to high-end computing. SWITCH has supported the UNLV Supercomputing Institute by housing some servers and funding a high-speed fiber optic connection to the UNLV campus. NIPM scientists are taking advantage of this support.
