UW expands efforts in genomics, precision medicine

A new building going up at UW Health’s clinical and research complex on Madison’s West Side will be home to an expanded focus on two hot fields: genetic testing and treatments tailored to the genetic makeup of patients or their disease.

The newly created UW Center for Human Genomics and Precision Medicine will be housed in a $21 million, two-story building attached to the Wisconsin Institutes for Medical Research, next to UW Hospital.

An additional $7 million will be spent to connect the genomics building, expected to open next year, to the hospital and remodel areas within the hospital for genomics facilities.
