Mayo Clinic's Center for Individualized Medicine provides personalized medicine that includes studying genes to define each person's unique disease susceptibility, identify preventive measures and enable targeted therapies to promote wellness.

Mayo Clinic continues its strong commitment to genetics and genomics research through numerous research projects. These are just a few examples:

  • The Colon Cancer Family Registry at Mayo Clinic is part of an international consortium dedicated to furthering an understanding of the risk factors for colorectal cancer.
  • The Mayo Clinic Biobank collects donated blood samples that are available for studies aimed at a better understanding of how a person's genes influence overall health and wellness.
