About the Center
The Mayo Clinic Center for Individualized Medicine is transforming patient care with field-leading science, a bold vision and global impact. The center's research not only opens doors to the therapies and cures of the future but also develops solutions for patients in real time.
Investigators in the center are using their deep understanding of the disrupted genetics behind disease to develop new approaches to prevent, treat and even cure devastating illnesses — including cancer. First-in-human clinical trials and studies offer life-changing possibilities to families affected by rare genetic diseases. Use of new techniques such as a robust digital platform and new artificial intelligence algorithms is providing hope to those with chronic conditions such as congestive heart failure, major depressive disorder, rheumatoid arthritis and more.
In the near future, all Mayo Clinic patients will benefit from individualized medicine — whether they are healthy and want to remain that way, are at risk of disease and trying to minimize the risk, or are sick and need care.
Additionally, dynamic industry partnerships and collaborations help researchers develop tests and treatments to fight antibiotic-resistant infections, create gene therapies for inherited diseases, and develop other life-changing and lifesaving advances.
As a thought leader in the rapidly evolving field of precision medicine, the Center for Individualized Medicine is dedicated to developing the health care workforce of the future: clinicians and scientists capable of rapidly understanding and integrating the newest precision medicine knowledge into practice.
The Center for Individualized Medicine is organized into two interwoven groups of programs. The translational programs bring discoveries to patient care, while the infrastructure programs provide technical resources, expertise and services to ensure information is available to all medical providers, wherever the patient may be.
