"To me, personalized medicine represents a revolution in standard medical practice where an individual's genetic information would be leveraged to prevent, diagnose, and guide treatment. I joined Partners Personalized Medicine because it allows me to participate and witness the application of translational research into the clinic. It also provides tremendous resources to researchers and clinicians to facilitate the path for personalized medicine." - Sami Amir
Sami Amr is the Director of the Translational Genomics Core of Partners HealthCare Personalized Medicine where he feels privileged to work with basic and translational researchers across Partners Healthcare to identify DNA, RNA, and methylation markers and signatures of disease that can help de-convolute underlying mechanisms of pathogenesis as well as be leveraged in diagnostic and clinical assays.
