Stanford Hospitals Open Clinical Genomics Service


February 6, 2014 | Two hospitals associated with the Stanford School of Medicine – Stanford Hospitals & Clinics and Lucile Packard Children's Hospital Stanford – today announced the opening of a new Clinical Genomics Service, using broad genome sequencing to make difficult diagnoses. The service will begin by serving patients with rare, undiagnosed genetic diseases; those with unexplained hereditary cardiovascular disorders, neurological disorders, and cancer risks; and those experiencing unexplained adverse drug reactions. The Stanford effort is particularly notable among clinical genome sequencing programs, in that one of the directors of the Clinical Genomics Service, Euan Ashley, was also involved in the first case in which a healthy person's whole genome was sequenced to predict disease and pharmacogenetic risks in 2010.
