The Yale School of Medicine, partnering with Yale New Haven Hospital, has taken the next step toward personalized medicine, cutting the ribbon on its Center for Genome Analysis on Yale’s West Campus.

Dr. Robert Alpern, dean of the Yale School of Medicine, said, “The idea is that you can know the total sequence of a patient and then follow their history, their health, what happens to them and then correlate them together so that someday we will be able to predict everything about one’s health just from their DNA sequence.”
