(CRWE Press Release)- Building on the enormous success of the first phase of SIGMA launched in 2010 with the support of the Carlos Slim Foundation to find disease-causing genes through genomic research, the Broad Institute of Harvard and MIT today announced that the Carlos Slim Foundation has made an additional contribution of $74M to launch the second phase (SIGMA 2) of this major biomedical partnership aimed at harnessing genomic medicine for the benefit of Latin America and the world.
SIGMA is an unprecedented partnership that aims to ensure that Latin Americans benefit from the genomic revolution by:
* Promoting wider access to genomic medicine in Mexico and Latin America by supporting discovery programs that focus on health problems with particular relevance to the region, and leverage its unique population genetics, and
* Enhancing genomic research capacity in Mexico through training of scientists and encouraging the development of genomic diagnostics and therapeutics in Latin America.
