Forging the Future of Precision Pediatric Care

Our Passion

At Rady Children’s Institute for Genomic Medicine, our passion is transforming children’s lives through genomic sequencing. We are pushing the boundaries of science and engineering to speed answers and hope for newborns and children with rare genetic diseases. By rapidly delivering genomic insights, we empower physicians with the information they need to provide precision care for the youngest and most fragile patients.

About Us


Building the NICU of the Future
Healthcare providers, genomic researchers and medical students are invited to attend the monthly education series to learn and discuss the latest innovations in clinical practice of genomic medicine.



Sequencing to save lives & lower costs
Our economic analysis shows that using rapid Whole Genome Sequencing in the NICU to deliver precise diagnosis and guide treatment decreases infant mortality and the cost of hospitalization.



Launching Project Baby Bear
A $2 million state-funded initiative will provide genomic testing to acutely ill newborns in select cities across California. Read more in the San Diego Union-Tribune.
