From world-class research, to access to a major physician network serving over 2 million patients, HPCGG has the resources needed to start translating genomic results into better health care.
HPCGG is a joint enterprise between Harvard Medical School and Partners HealthCare System, dedicated to accelerating the realization of personalized medicine by discovering and integrating genetic knowledge into the healthcare system.
Raju Kucherlapati, director at HPCGG commented, "If we can improve the accuracy of warfarin dosing by our clinicians, even by modest percentages, we will increase the likelihood that patients will respond to therapy and ultimately we will reduce serious medical complications of therapy.
Upon completion of the study, both HPCGG and Metabolon expect to report results from the collaboration in a peer-reviewed publication.
