Studying the Genetic Origins of Disease
At Sanford Research, we study how all the genes in your body – the genome – work in concert to promote healthy cellular function. We focus on studying origins of disease at the level of people, organs, or even one individual cell at a time.
Harnessing the power of bioinformatics and big data, we work to generate more personalized medicines and individualized treatments.
The Genetics and Genomics Group focuses on:
- Understanding cellular identity and what leads to disease progression
- Using genomic sequencing and bioinformatics to understand cell development
- Developing personalized therapies and treatments
We use this information to integrate clinical genetics into everyday primary care. Providers can then make better decisions on prescribing medications and screening for risk of chronic disorders.
