Established from UCSD School of Medicine and the UCSD Skaggs School of Pharmacy and Pharmaceutical Sciences, the UCSD Institute for Genomic Medicine organizes the multi-disciplinary resources necessary to effectively translate the discoveries of genetic and genomic research from “bench to bedside”.
Their mission statement: “The Institute for Genomic Medicine at the University of California, San Diego aims to discover new pathways in human health and disease and translate these discoveries to clinical and preventive medicine. Our multidisciplinary physician-scientist teams integrate clinical phenotypes with genomic, transcriptomic, proteomic, metabolomic and signaling approaches to understand and treat genetic contributions to human disease.”
Interesting note: The Institute runs a weekly Genetics Bioinformatics & Systems Biology Colloquium series with many speakers from the Big3Bio regions. More about the seminar series
