Why Give

Your generous support empowers TGen to accelerate genomic discoveries toward patient care today, while shaping the future of health care and precision medicine.

We use ‘precision medicine’ to apply the right dose of the right treatment to the right patient at the right time.

As part of the City of Hope family, TGen, the Translational Genomics Research Institute, is bringing the combined strengths of both organizations to bear on humanity’s most dreaded diseases. Together, TGen and City of Hope, with your support, will accelerate the speed with which scientists and clinicians convert research discoveries into cures for patients. We stand at the forefront of a new era in precision medicine, so your partnership is more impactful now than ever before.

A hallmark of TGen is our belief that by utilizing the latest technologies, and drawing on the clinical excellence of City of Hope, we can increase our understanding of complex diseases toward early detection and improved treatment.

By identifying treatment options in this manner, we believe medicine becomes more rational, more precise and more personal.

Every gift to TGen has a direct impact on our work, which includes:

  • Cancer
  • Neurological disorders
  • Infectious diseases
  • Rare childhood disorders
