    Giulia C. Kennedy, Ph.D., CSO, SVP of Research, Product, and Clinical Development, Veracyte The diagnosis of a complex disease rarely presents itself in a vacuum. The patient comes to a place in the clinical workflow after a journey, often referred to as “The Diagnostic Odyssey”. Biopsies and clinical information enter that workflow at different places, with high-dimensional genomic information often being collected on these precious samples. How do we incorporate “the backstory” embedded in this workflow into meaningful diagnostic algorithms that are appropriate to that particular phase in the patient's quest for a diagnosis? An example derived from thyroid nodule diagnosis will be used as illustration of how different clinical and genomic data are called into play at specific times to resolve ambiguity and improve patient care.

      The Innovative Genomics Initiative at the Li Ka Shing Center for Genomic Engineering in Berkeley, CA, is defining the next-generation of genetic engineering and genomics research using CRISPR/Cas9 gene editing technology. CRISPR technology, discovered at UC Berkeley in 2012, enables scientists to learn about the specific functions of chromosomes by activating or inhibiting genes, and to change the functions of living cells and organisms by reprograming genetic information. This introductory video provides an overview of CRISPR/Cas9 technology and describes some of the research applications the IGI and its collaborators will initially be investigating. Appearing in the video are Jennifer Doudna (IGI Executive Director; Professor, UC Berkeley; Investigator, HHMI), Mike Botchan (IGI Administrative Director and Professor, UC Berkeley), Jonathan Weissman (IGI Co-Director and Professor, UCSF; Investigator, HHMI), Jacob Corn (IGI Scientific Director, UC Berkeley), Jennifer Puck (Professor of Pediatrics, UCSF School of Medicine) and Janet Napolitano (President, University of California).

          Not all Prostate Cancer treatments are equal, and it's important to identify those who need more aggressive treatment and those who do not. Prolaris provides unique additional information about a patient’s prognosis and may be used with other clinical factors in helping the healthcare provider make treatment recommendations.

                The UConn Health Center and The Jackson Laboratory are collaborating to build the future of genomic medicine. The Jackson Laboratory for Genomic Medicine is being built on a 17-acre site on the campus of the University of Connecticut Health Center in Farmington, CT. Together, UConn and JAX will transform medicine by improving care, lowering costs, and increasing life span and health span. JAX Genomic Medicine will discover the precise genomic causes of disease; develop individualized diagnostics, treatments and cures; and help build Connecticut's bioscience industry. The Jackson Laboratory for Genomic Medicine will open in the fall of 2014. For more information, visit: http://www.jax.org/ct and http://biosciencect.uchc.edu/jackson_laboratory/
