This platform is designed to link clinicians and clinician scientists with genomics researchers to advance their knowledge and accelerate the pace with which new discoveries about the genetic basis of health and disease reach and get applied at the bedside. It proposes a thorough and coordinated process to make the most up-to-date findings from genotyping, genomic sequencing, bioinformatics, genetic epidemiology and family studies available to assist clinicians and clinician research teams in the diagnosis, care and support of people with complex genetic disorders. This will involve the development of a province-wide network that coordinates clinical investigators, leading-edge genomic resources and scientists with expertise in complementary aspects of translational medicine.
