U.S. Army Awards CHLA $1.05M for Next-Gen Sequencing Facility for Childhood Diseases

  • Researchers at the Children’s Hospital of Los Angeles (CHLA) have been awarded $1.05 million by the U.S. Army to establish a core genome-profiling facility focused on carrying out whole-genome sequencing to investigate the genetic basis of childhood diseases including cancer. CHLA claims the new unit will be the first of its kind to use next-generation sequencing specifically to study diseases in the young.

    “With this award we will develop the infrastructure to create a center for precision medicine to enable genomic profiling of life-threatening disease in children and young adults,” comments Timothy J. Triche, M.D., who is the recipient of the award. Dr. Triche is director of the Center for Personalized Medicine at CHLA.
