This is the TGen blog, where you can take a peek inside our
laboratories and learn how our research is helping patients every
From the Center for Rare Childhood Disorders serving the
youngest patients and their families to our innovative Alzheimer's
research, our occasional posts will share the triumphs and
challenges that our scientists face as they explore the human
genome to find answers for the most complex and puzzling medical
conditions of our time.
TGen researchers investigate cancer, neurological disorders,
metabolic disorders and pathogens with the purpose of delivering
answers to the patient's bedside as quickly as possible. This is
precision medicine at its finest.
