Precision Diagnostics

Precision Diagnostics at UCLA is a fully integrated clinical service, including genomics and other specialized testing that facilitates lifesaving precision medicine treatments directly to patients—all within the same hospital.

The revolutionary science behind genomic testing isolates and provides care for the major health problems of our time: cancer, depression, cardiovascular and brain diseases, to name a few.
