Baylor Miraca Genetics Laboratories, a joint venture of Baylor College of Medicine and Miraca Holdings, Inc., has rebranded as Baylor Genetics.
Baylor has provided diagnostics services for more than 35 years, and is the No. 1 funded genetics department by the National Institutes of Health. Additionally, Baylor is home to one of four U.S.-based large scale genome sequencing centers funded by the NIH, the Human Genome Sequencing Center. Baylor Genetics was launched in February 2015, building on Baylor’s genetic testing services.
Gary Huff, Baylor Genetics President and CEO, explains, “Our new identity - firmly associated with Baylor College of Medicine and the partnership with the Human Genome Sequencing Center - plays to those strengths and to the needs of today’s genetic counselors, physicians, payers and patients who require in-depth answers and support.”
