A central goal of the CGM is to develop and support pilot projects that allow biomedical scientists and practitioners to apply genomic technology in ways that serve as a platform for additional sponsored projects and/or clinical services. This approach helps benefit the broader community. These pilot programs have emphasized investigator-initiated research proposals. This effort has been successful in providing a platform for developing new projects and collaborations. It also has helped secure external funding.

The Alabama Genomic Health Initiative (AGHI) is one of the first statewide efforts in the country to harness the power of genomic analysis in routine medical practice. The vision is to engage citizens throughout the state and their health providers in the use of genomic information to guide medical care. Now, at the close of the second year of enrollment, and with over 3000 participants enrolled, the program has returned a number of results to participants in both the genotype and whole genome sequencing cohorts. The goal is to enroll 10,000 participants from the state of Alabama over the course of the planned five year program. Continue reading “The Alabama Genomic Health Initiative Takes Shape in Year Two”
