This is the TGen blog, where you can take a peek inside our laboratories and learn how our research is helping patients every day.

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.
