Genomics of Primary Immunodeficiency Disorders

The GUaRDIAN Programme on Primary Immunodeficiency Disorders is a collaborative initiative to provide holistic approach to patient care including genomic diagnosis, management and prevention of Primary Immunodeficiency Disorders.

Govt. Medical College Kozhikode, KERALA

The collaborative programme on Primary Immunodeficiency Disorders at Government Medical College Kozhikode is established as part of the research collaboration between the Government Medical College Kozhikode and the CSIR Institute of Genomics and Integrative Biology (CSIR-IGIB) to understand the genetic landscape of primary immunodeficiency disorders in the state as part of the GUaRDIAN Initiative.

The programme today has resulted in a comprehensive care centre for Primary Immunodeficiency Disorders in the region providing comprehensive care to patients and families.
