A Message from Bruce R. Korf, MD, PhD, FACMG
Foundation President

 

“Genetics and genomics offer powerful new approaches to prevent, diagnose, and treat both rare and common disorders. Realizing the promise of genetic and genomic medicine, however, will require not only continued basic biological and clinical research, but also education of healthcare providers and the public as well as vigilance to the complex ethical, legal, and social issues. The ACMG Foundation for Genetic and Genomic Medicine is dedicated to facilitating the timely, safe, and effective translation of the exciting opportunities in genetics and genomics into medical practice.  With your help we can insure that the research investments made in this area are used to benefit all people and move us towards an era in which medical care can be truly personalized to the unique needs of every individual.”
