Developing genomic medicine in Mexico
In this article, Gerardo Jimenez-Sanchez of Johns Hopkins University Mexico outlines plans to develop a genomic programme in Mexico that focuses on national health problems. The plans, which include establishing an Institute of Genomic Medicine, are being developed by a consortium of leading Mexican scientific and health institutes.
The consortium has already established three new graduate courses in genomic medicine at the National Autonomous University of Mexico, and aims to get the Mexican Institute of Genomic Medicine off the ground by the end of this year.
