[Source: The Arizona Republic] – Almost a decade ago, the International Genomics Consortium (IGC), the world-renowned tissue bank which selected Phoenix as its headquarters in 2001, staked its claim as the first non-profit medical-research organization in Arizona’s new world of bioscience, genomics and personalized medicine.

IGC’s presence as the cornerstone of the Phoenix Biomedical Campus symbolizes much-needed continuity in the unrelenting effort to enhance and improve health care on a global scale through the translation of diagnostics. IGC, shortly after it moved to Phoenix, initiated the creation of the Translational Genomics Research Institute (TGen), thus triggering a revolution in Arizona’s scientific, medical and economic landscape.
