The International Center
for Genetic Diseases (ICGD) and the UAE Genetics Diseases Association (UAEGDA)
collaborate on a ‘pilot’ Research and Training Project. This project is fully
aligned with the goals and aspirations of, and entirely consistent with the
strategies of these institutions in the field of genomic medicine. Advances in
genomics, clinical diagnostic methods and therapies are now fueling healthcare.
By integrating clinical data and genetic information, healthcare providers can
improve population screening, diagnosis, prognosis, risk management, and in
some cases, offer new and innovative targeted therapy for conditions such as
cardiovascular diseases, lipid disorders, diabetes, cancer, among many other
clinically complex morbidities.
