With the largest clinical genetics program housed at Baylor Clinic, our vision for a future of personalized medicine is quickly becoming a reality. As an academic-based center, the Dan L Duncan Comprehensive Cancer Center at Baylor College of Medicine offers cutting-edge, research-based treatment options such as using patients' own genetic makeup to identify their potential for cancer, prevent its onset, more effectively diagnose and treat the disease when it does occur, and one day, provide a cure.

We’re bringing our vision to life through the continued pursuit of genomic research and the rapid translation of new discoveries into improved patient care.
