Overview

This Center, located in Boston, MA, is a collaboration between Boston Children’s Hospital, Brigham and Women’s Hospital, and Massachusetts General Hospital. Our goal is to offer new hope to patients who suffer from diseases and symptoms that have eluded diagnosis.  Each patient will consult with a team of experts who will provide a detailed clinical evaluation, cutting-edge genetic and genomic analysis, environmental exposure analysis, proteomics, metabolomics, systems biology and network medicine analysis.

The center will tap the three hospitals’ strengths, such as Brigham and Women’s expertise in cardiac genetics and Boston Children’s knowledge of neurogenetics and rare diseases. The clinical team is made up of world class experts that are recognized globally as leaders in their individual fields of medicine. They are at the forefront of cutting-edge research, clinical technologies, and genetic sequencing that spans across adult and pediatric specialties and subspecialties. Patients in the program will benefit from our doctors’ medical knowledge and translational research, while receiving the highest level of interdisciplinary clinical care.
