The Institute for Genomic Medicine

The Institute for Genomic Medicine (IGM) at Nationwide Children's Hospital was created in 2016 as one of the first ventures into pediatric personalized genomic medicine for children's hospitals.

The Institute for Genomic Medicine combines a robust clinical laboratory with genome scientists and clinical geneticists to optimize patient care. Collaboration among clinicians, physician-scientists, and basic science investigators is emphasized to quickly transition novel research results into advanced diagnostics, using state-of-the-art technology.

The Institute's world-renowned faculty are moving genome-based testing into the mainstream of pediatric diagnosis and treatment, making the results accessible and meaningful for patients and families.
