The Centre for Genetic Medicine
Advancing clinical care through research, technology and knowledge
Individualized medicine is by no means a new idea at SickKids, but its implementation requires radical changes in the practice of medicine. The centre model concept is designed to promote collaboration among health professionals and leverage institutional and programmatic strengths to build system change with the long-term goal of advancing future policy development.
The Centre for Genetic Medicine will promote interdisciplinary groundbreaking research in genomics and genetic medicine, and support service and training initiatives for academic, government and private sector scientists worldwide. The centre will provide opportunities for innovation that will focus on discovery, translation and knowledge transfer.
As one of the world’s foremost paediatric health centres, The Hospital for Sick Children is committed to a global vision of Healthier Children. A Better World.
"The Centre for Genetic Medicine will change the future of paediatric medicine and pave the way for SickKids and Toronto to become leaders in the field of individualized medicine."
Dr. Ronni Cohn, Centre Co-Director
