November 29, 2012

PHOENIX, Nov. 29, 2012 /PRNewswire/ — Although molecular medicine has been lauded as a game-changing science, patients have yet to see the benefits. Until now.

On Dec. 4, one of the nation’s largest children’s hospitals, in collaboration with a major genomics research organization and a nationally regarded university, will announce a major venture that puts genomics research into clinical practice immediately to benefit children with terminal diagnoses.

Unlike other children’s hospitals engaged in basic genomics research, the Institute of Molecular Medicine will take research to the next level, providing real-time access to drug therapies never before used in children.
