Establishing Wisconsin's First Cancer Precision Medicine Simulation Unit

Transforming and advancing the interpretation of cancer-associated gene mutations

Full Project Name:Establishing Wisconsin's First Cancer Precision Medicine Simulation UnitPrincipal Investigator:Raul Urrutia, MD, Genomic Sciences and Precision Medicine CenterAward Amount:$4,000,000
Award Date
February2019
Project Duration:48 months

Project Description Narrative:


In the field of precision medicine, simulations are critical in order to deal with human material, as experimentation on humans is not possible. By establishing the first Precision Medicine Simulation Unit (PMSU) in the state of Wisconsin, the Medical College of Wisconsin's Genomic Sciences and Precision Medicine Center aims to advance the interpretation of cancer-associated gene mutations and ultimately develop powerful tools to fight these diseases.

Through this award, MCW's Genomic Sciences and Precision Medicine Center will establish the first PMSU in Wisconsin. developing the tools to process cancer genomics data, supporting experimental assays, and enhancing tools available to researchers and medical practice for interpreting genomics data.
