Dr. Carracedo will direct the Genomic Medicine program in Spain, with a 7.5 million budget


..#Drafting.
The #Genomic #Medicine program, one of the three that make up the #Precision #Medicine #Infrastructure associated with #Science and #Technology (IMPaCT), will have 7.25 million euros and will be coordinated by the director of the #Genomic #Medicine group at #CiMUS from the #University of #Santiago de #Compostela, #Dr. Ángel #Carracedo. The program will create a national next-generation sequencing network to apply in rare diseases, cancer and pharmacogenetics of biomarkers of response to cancer and psychiatric treatments.

#According to #Dr. #Carracedo, this project “#It marks the present and future path of the development of personalized precision medicine in #Spain”. #In addition, he adds that he will have “A key importance” for the #National #Health #System (SNS) since genomic medicine “#It represents a revolution in healthcare by allowing diagnoses, identifying the best treatments and designing prevention strategies”.

The program will have a network of five reference centers for genomic analysis and a
group of clinical experts. #Thus, a total of 45 groups from 38 centers (25 hospitals and 13 from research centers or universities) will participate, with representation from all the #Autonomous #Communities.

#In addition to the #Genomic #Medicine program coordinated by #Dr. #Carracedo, IMPaCT, which is part of the #Strategic #Health #Action 2017-2020 of the ISCIII, will also develop the #Predictive #Medicine and #Data #Science programs, coordinated by #Dr. #Marina #Pollán , in the #Ciber of #Epidemiology and #Public #Health (#Ciberesp), and by #Alfonso #Valencia from the #Barcelona #Supercomputer #Center-CNS.

The objective of the IMPaCT #Program on #Genomic #Medicine is to create a robust collaborative structure for the implementation of genomic medicine in coordination with the #National #Health #System. #Thus, the aim is for patients from all territories to have equal access to the genomic tests they need, while obtaining genomic data that can be used in research.

The network of genomic analysis centers and the group of clinical experts will offer highly complex genomic sequencing services. #It will also facilitate the interpretation of the results and the preparation of a clinical report for the entire SNS. #You will start with three application examples. #On the one hand, the diagnosis of rare diseases. #On the other, the somatic mutation in cancer. #Third, application of pharmacogenetics in cancer and psychiatric diseases.

#In addition, the #CiMUS (#Center for #Research in #Molecular #Medicine and #Chronic #Diseases) highlights that the #Genomic #Medicine project will be coordinated with international initiatives such as the #European project 1+ #Million #Genomes, the #International #Research #Consortium on #Rare #Diseases (IRDiRC) and the #Consortium #International #Cancer #Genome (ICGC).
