Partners HealthCare Personalized Medicine (PPM) translates and integrates the science of genetics and genomics into medical practice. Its focus is on constantly increasing the benefit genetics provides for patients facing life threatening and debilitating disease. This requires scalable information technology that spans research and clinical domains and connects laboratories to clinicians. Partners Personalized Medicine works closely with Enterprise Research Infrastructure & Services (ERIS) to design and maintain the infrastructure that supports the field’s rapid evolution.
