The long-term goal of the Center for Medical Genomics at the Indiana University School of Medicine
is to improve health by facilitating
research with state-of-the-art genomic technologies for studying gene
expression and genetics. Advances in the human
genome project provide the foundation for a new way of studying health
and disease, in which differences in the sequence and expression of
thousands of genes can be analyzed. The Center
for Medical Genomics
provides infrastructure and consulting for use of genomic technology in
studies of disease and in other biomedical research. We will pursue
development of these technologies, and assist investigators in their
• Microarrays : Experiments using microarray technology
will provide clues to diagnoses and prognoses of diseases, treatment
choices, drug design, and fundamental understanding of biology.
• High-throughput Genotyping : Genes influence
all of our physiological and pathological processes. Individual
differences in gene sequence lead to differences in the risk for
diseases and in the response to treatment. Experiments using
high-throughput genotyping will enable us to study how genes influence
disease and treatment in large populations.
These genomic technologies allow us to explore gene expression and
genetic differences, and will impact virtually all areas of biomedical
and biological research, diagnosis and treatment in dramatic ways.
based on these genomic approaches will lead to better diagnosis of
better treatments (including more effective drugs with fewer
and cures. Medicine will move into an era of more individualized
