A one hundred twenty five million dollar gift from T.Denny Sanford to his namesake medical organization will establish a genetics based treatment and research program.

Called “Sanford Imagenetics” the program will add genetic testing and counseling for those with chronic illnesses.

Dr Gene Hoyme, Chief Academic Officer, and President of Sanford Research-USD, says they will hire more genetic specialists that will work with patients and their families on medical histories that lead to specialized treatments…

 

Hoyme says as their data base develops, the genetic information will help many patients manage chronic conditions…

 

Hoyme says they will also get patient feedback to see how the genetics helped in recovery…

 

Hoyme says they will also expand their genetic research capability to better define the markers that show the most success.

The “Imagenetics” program will be rolled out in all the Sanford major medical providers over the next few months.
