Moffitt, Sanford-Burnham and Florida Hospital create Personalized Medicine Partnership of Florida
Date:2/8/2012

t.

The approach includes medical, nutritional, psychological, social and physical considerations.

Collaborations between research and clinical organizations are increasing as a means to access complementary resources, attract more sizable grant revenues and enhance the translation of laboratory research to clinical application.

"PMP Florida is a multi-institutional model for combining research and clinical care expertise to advance personalized medical care. Sanford-Burnham will deploy our most advanced technologies to discover molecular signatures of disease that can provide insight for determining appropriate therapeutic interventions," said John C.

Pilot projects will utilize Moffitt's genome mapping, information systems and clinical research protocols developed through Total Cancer Care. The research will be empowered by Sanford-Burnham's scientific expertise in genomics and metabolomics technology platforms.
