Vermont Oxford Rady Children's Genomic Network

About the Genomic Network Biorepository

The Vermont Oxford Rady Children’s Genomic Network conducts educational activities to advance knowledge and competency in genomic medicine in newborn care. VON and Rady Children’s Institute for Genomic Medicine (RCIGM) are partnering to launch a biorepository to help centers implement Rapid Precision Medicine to diagnose and guide care for critically ill infants.

Eligible participating centers will have access to up to 10 rapid Whole Genome Sequences and detailed reports and support from RCIGM at no cost.

Through this biorepository, we aim to:

  • Provide access to rapid Whole Genome Sequencing at no cost to participating centers to diagnose and guide clinical management of infants in Level III and IV NICUs;
  • Further the understanding of specific neonatal genetic diseases, treatment responses, and outcomes;
  • Identify new genomic abnormalities and their phenotypic presentations.

Level III and IV centers that are VON Core members are eligible to participate in the biorepository.
