Course Information

Genomic Medicine Institute

Launched in 2005, the Genomic Medicine Institute (GMI) is part of the Lerner Research Institute at Cleveland Clinic. Specifically designed to enhance translational genomic medicine, GMI is comprised of 12 research laboratories, the Center for Personalized Genetic Healthcare (CPGH), the Genomic Medicine Biorepository (GMB), and the Genomics Core Facility. CPGH is clinically aligned with Cleveland Clinic Community Care (4C).

Vision

To bring genetic and genomic expertise to all of Cleveland Clinic’s clinical care subspecialties.

Mission

To translate genetic research discoveries into better patient care by engaging in clinical practice, research, and education; to provide a work culture that enables us to bring genetics and genomics, through our research and clinics, into all subspecialties of the Cleveland Clinic’s healthcare system; and to foster innovation toward realizing the benefits of personalized genomic-based healthcare.

Clinical Expertise

The Center for Personalized Genetic Healthcare (CPGH) is Cleveland Clinic’s first comprehensive clinical genetics program, providing family history-based disease risk assessment and management for prenatal to adult onset disorders.

CPGH’s genetic experts (11 Geneticists, 22 Genetic Counselors and 1 Pharmacogenomicist) work closely with Cleveland Clinic’s healthcare professionals to provide genetic counseling services and, if appropriate, genetic testing. Clinical genetics care is integrated throughout the Cleveland Clinic system in over 24 locations.
