Nationally Recognized

TIME logo

Our key focus is on improving health care for children — redefining pediatric medicine one child at a time. Timemagazine recently named our rapid whole genome sequencing approach a top medical breakthrough of 2012.

Thousands of children affected by uncharacterized inherited diseases are referred to Children's Mercy each year. The Center for Pediatric Genomic Medicine works with children to discover, for the first time, the genetic causes of hundreds of single-gene childhood diseases.

Clinical Services

While most genome centers are focused on research, the Center for Pediatric Genomic Medicine develops new clinical tests as a starting point for next-generation medical treatments to improve outcomes in patients at Children's Mercy and around the world. Learn more about TaGSCAN, STAT-Seq and exome sequencing on our website.

The Center for Pediatric Genomic Medicine provides genome, computation and analysis capabilities that support our most cutting-edge research programs in Pediatrics, Neonatology, Hematology/Oncology, Fetal Health, Pharmacogenetics and Personalized Medicine.
