TGen (Translational Genomics Research Institute) is using the human genome to discover the genetic basis of many diseases, and how best to create new ways of treating those disorders.
In the near future, cancer will surpass heart disease as the #1 killer in the U.S. In 2015, an estimated 1.7 million Americans will be diagnosed with cancer, and an estimated 589,000 patients will die. That’s more than 4,500 new patients every day —another death every minute.
At TGen, we can’t wait another minute to use our scientific expertise in genetics and genomics to find better ways to diagnose, treat and, even prevent cancer in the first place.
Our laboratory discoveries lead to new drugs that can be delivered to patients — now — though our numerous hospital-based clinical trials.
Our global leadership in cancer research has placed us in the forefront of clinical success.
