IPGG : Institute of Personalized Genomics and Gene Therapy
Knowledge in molecular genetics has fundamentally advanced our understanding of human disease; yet this advancement has been underutilized in clinical services and treatments for people living in Thailand and other South East Asian (SEA) eountries. Alack of ethnic-specific genetic research and inaccessibility to related technologies underlines the problem.
The Institute of Personalized Genomics and Gene Therapy(IPGG) is being established to satisfy this domestic and regional need for specialized information, knowledge, and patient care. IPGG is focusing on 3 main arenas: conducting comprehensive and cutting-edge Thai/SEA genetic research: applying genetic information to support diagnosis treatment, and policy making; and, providing training in genetics and bioinformatics to build up a critical mass of local researchers and medical doctors for the development of the nation.
IPGG is composed of teams of medical doctors, scientists, geneticsts, bioinformaticans, statisticians, and population scientists who work in close collaboration to bring about the moveldiscoveries and advancements with both theoretical and practical implication.
Institute of Personalized Genomics and Gene Therapy (IPGG) operates on personalized genomics and gene therapy research, one-stop personalized genomics and gene therapy service, including clinical database. The institute can be applied to the national health policy which is leading the country moving towards the top of ASEAN.
