Improvement Through Genetics
The study of genetics has reached a critical point. With the vast amounts of new information becoming available every day as a result of the Human Genome Project, medical genetics research teams are making substantial advances in both the treatment and prevention of genetic related disorders. Through the Sports Spectacular Medical Genetics Institute, physicians and researchers at Cedars-Sinai are at the forefront of this movement, and have become recognized as world leaders in the field.
By applying the scientific discoveries in human genetics to practical medicine, the Genetics Institute continues to deliver breakthroughs for children and their families in the diagnosis, prevention and treatment of inherited conditions, genetic disorders and birth defects.
The Sports Spectacular Medical Genetics Institute at Cedars-Sinai also provides a full range of genetic screening services to help people identify those diseases they may be at risk for and develop a plan to actively minimize risk factors.
The Institute also has a robust teaching component and active residency training program to ensure that the next generation of doctors is ready to step in and continue the amazing work that has already taken place.
