Inova Translational Medicine Institute

The consortium is comprised of researchers from Inova, Roswell Park Comprehensive Cancer Center, the Mayo Clinic, and MD Anderson Cancer Center.

How labs — including those that are part of other healthcare systems — offering PGx testing will react to Inova's decision to not engage with the FDA remains to be seen.

Pharmacogenetics and legal experts took particular issue with the agency's suggestion that "established" drug/gene relationships are found only in FDA-approved drug labels.

The agency said the MediMap tests are in violation of Federal Food, Drug, and Cosmetic Act because they are intended, in part, for use in disease diagnosis.

NIH and Inova Health System are populating the nascent Genomic Ascertainment Cohort with data from ClinSeq and Inova's longitudinal family study

During a two-year pilot, the Genomic Ascertainment Cohort will collect 10,000 genotypes and make patients available for follow-up exams to confirm predictions.

Inova Translational Medicine Institute has become more efficient running Cloudera's platform, but continues to evaluate this new world of bioinformatics.

Inova Health System is on track to open applications for its Personalized Health Accelerator in July, likely the first such accelerator in the US hosted by a healthcare provider.

Inova plans to offer broad and condition-specific PGx gene panels in its specialty clinics and is negotiating with payors for reimbursement. 

Inova is using Translational's platform to evaluate data from MediMap, a new test that evaluates pharmacogenetics markers in seven genes in newborns.
