Mayo Clinic's Center for Individualized Medicine was established in 2011 as a strategic priority to integrate genomics into patient care. Researchers, physicians and other clinical staff members collaborate in a comprehensive team science approach to bring advanced diagnostic tests and individualized therapies to patients. The center has established service lines in cancer, rare and undiagnosed diseases, pharmacogenomics, and predictive genomics and is integrating these services into patient care.
The Center for Individualized Medicine is transforming patient care through advanced genetic tests and individualized treatments that address patients' unmet needs by finding accurate diagnoses earlier, providing safer drug therapies and customizing treatment plans based on each patient's unique genetic makeup.
Mayo Clinic is focused on four strategic themes to move breakthrough therapies and critical advances in patient care from the research lab to the clinical practice so that more patients can benefit from the promise of individualized medicine:
Genomic tests analyze your DNA to customize health care and help find answers to difficult medical questions.
Our team evaluates each request to determine if an individualized medicine evaluation is indicated.
Collecting information about your personal and family medical history may be necessary before meeting the care team.
A team of experts, each with a specific role, provides a personalized and comprehensive patient care visit.
Our team interprets your unique results and helps you understand how they may affect your health care while protecting your privacy.
Drug-gene testing helps determine the best medicine for you based on your unique genetic profile.
Individualized medicine studies are available for patient volunteers.
