GUaRDIAN is a consortium of over 150 clinicians and researchers from over 40 medical and research centers making it one of the largest clinical genomics research networks in India

What is GUaRDIAN ?
  GUaRDIAN is a collaborative research programme towards understanding the genetic basis and molecular mechanisms underlying rare genetic disorders. We use the advanced sequencing technologies, extensive bioinformatics and animal models. Our collaborators include a large number of clinicians and scientists.

Genomics for Precision Medicine in India
Our collaborative network includes pioneers in personal genome sequencing and analysis in India, and the collaborative network brings together the enormous expertise in clinical assessment, genome sequencing, analysis and interpretation. 

Focus areas of Research and Cohorts
Our network encompasses a wide variety of clinical specialties. Our large cohorts include Dermatology, Neurological disorders, Cardiovascular Diseases, Vascular Diseases, Immune Diseases, Opthalmological/Eye Diseases and Metabolic Diseases, just to name a few. We are open to include more cohorts in collaboration with clinical groups.  Please contact us for more details.
