The Laboratory for Molecular Medicine (LMM) currently offers over 100 genetic tests covering over 90 genes. The LMM works to develop genetic tests, particularly DNA sequencing assays, for complex as well as traditional single gene disorders within the clinical areas of cancer genetics, cardiovascular disease and hearing loss. By focusing on building a deep portfolio of tests in these domains, the LMM seeks to provide the most comprehensive service within these areas, both from the standpoint of the range of tests offered, as well as the depth of clinical knowledge to guide test selection and interpretation.
Partners HealthCare Center for Personalized Genetic Medicine (PCPGM) has also created dozens of online CMEs to educate primary care providers about a variety of genetic conditions. The courses are accredited by The Harvard Medical School Department of Continuing Education and are made possible by funding received from the Applera Charitable Foundation and Celera Genomics.
The Harvard Medical School designates these educational activities for AMA PRA Category 1 Credit(s)™. Courses are offered for a nominal fee of $20 per credit hour. Participants living in Africa can enroll in courses for free, and registrants from emerging nations receive a 50% discount. To date, these courses have been enjoyed by users around the world, and new cases are added on a regular basis.
