What is our precision medicine service?

Our precision medicine service uses genetics to inform care for children, including those with a disease or disorder that is rare, difficult to diagnose, or likely genetic. Our services aim to help children and their parents receive an earlier diagnosis, better understand their condition, get the best care, and identify best available treatment options.
