Clinical Genetic Testing

One of the Iowa Institute of Human Genetics (IIHG) focuses is bringing personalized genomic medicine to patients across Iowa, and beyond.The broad clinical expertise at the University of Iowa Hospitals and Clinics has the unique potential to offer diagnostic genetic testing platforms that target specific phenotypes or patient groups. These tests will be developed by the Research Division of the IIHG before their implementation by the Clinical Diagnostic Division of the IIHG.
