CENTER FOR HUMAN GENOMICS AND PRECISION MEDICINE (CHGPM) The UW-Madison CHGPM is dedicated to bringing genomic approaches to patient care to benefit all Wisconsinites. CHGPM is “developing a comprehensive strategy to catalyze basic science discovery in human genomics and related fields, accelerate innovative translation of research results into cutting-edge clinical applications, and democratize delivery of genome-based clinical services.” The mission of CGSI to develop new approaches in genomic technology and genome interpretation is a perfect complement to CHGPM, which aims to bring those technologies to patient care. CGSI and CHGPM maintain close connections to bring that goal to fruition.
CARBONE CANCER CENTER (CCC) The UW CCC, one of the oldest university cancer centers in the country, is “committed to defeating cancer through rapid application of groundbreaking research, prevention, and treatment.” The CCC links clinicians, biomedical researchers, and over 30,000 patients seen annually, bringing translational treatments that benefit cancer patients. Collaborative science between CGSI and CCC faculty members is helping to bridge that transition, by developing and then delivering new approaches to detect, study, and prevent cancer. Several CGSI faculty are also members of the CCC, strengthening ties.
