The UCSF Health Center for Clinical Genetics and Genomics (UCCGG) spans clinical genetics and genomics services from conception thru aging.  The clinics are engaged in counseling and diagnosing couples regarding genetic risk prior to and during conception, during embryonic development, and throughout pregnancy, childhood and adulthood.  UCSF is a preeminent center for cancer risk assessment and prevention.  Genetic testing services include profiling of individual’s tumors for the purposes of guiding oncologist’s targeted therapies to treat cancers. UCSF is at the forefront of developing and validating cutting edge genomic tests that span cancer genomics, pharmacogenetics, pre-conception, perinatal, neonatal, pediatric and adult diagnostics. The UCCGG is a point of training for future health care providers in genomic medicine, and laboratory directors for high quality genomic data generation and interpretation. We are engaged in cutting edge clinical trials to treat individuals with genetic diseases, to discover genetic causes of undiagnosed diseases, to understand mechanisms of disease and ethics of genomic testing, and to provide the most comprehensive diagnostic tools to the clinic and bedside.
