The Genomic Medicine Center at Children's Mercy was established in 2011. Among the first of its kind with a pediatric focus, the center provides clinical genomic services and is an epicenter for genomic research. Although our focus is sequencing and analysis of rare inherited diseases in children, plans are underway for expansion into a translational cancer genomics program and the use of pharmacogenomics in precision medicine.

The Genetics Clinic at Children's Mercy provides state-of-the-art evaluation, diagnosis, treatment and counseling for a variety of inherited conditions and chromosome disorders and genetic birth defects. The team includes physicians who are board-certified by the American Board of Medical Genetics and Genomics and genetic counselors.
