Englander Institute for Precision Medicine

New York’s leading clinicians use cutting-edge diagnostic methods and therapies, including precision medicine, to optimize outcomes. We invite you to learn more about our physicians based in New York City, treatment options, and how to make an appointment by visiting Weill Cornell Medicine’s patient site.

The Englander Institute offers genomic sequencing to patients with advanced disease that lacks an effective therapy. Our tests help clinicians and researchers understand tumor biology, disease progression and drug resistance, and allow for the development of novel therapeutics and targeted therapies.  

Finding the Right Treatment at the Right Time 

We believe in the power of collaboration, and there are many ways for you, as a patient, to get involved in both clinical and research testing. Your participation can contribute to groundbreaking discoveries and advancements in medical science. Here are some ways you can be part of our mission:

  • Clinical Trials and Research Studies: By participating in clinical trials, you not only receive innovative genetic profiling, but also help us fuel research that will help move the field forward towards personalized care, which will hopefully improve patient outcomes.
  • Personalized Treatment Plans: Our team works with your clinician to provide tools that may help tailor the treatment plan to your unique genetic makeup and medical history, ensuring the best possible outcome.
  • Patient Support:  Our dedicated team is here to provide you with the support and information you need throughout your journey to health.


Precision Medicine is an approach to treatment in which physicians match molecularly-targeted therapies to patient-specific genetic abnormalities.  When a patient meets with their care team for an initial consultation they will be informed about the goals of EIPM research studies, as well as potential risks and benefits of precision medicine . If patients decide to enroll in a study, they will sign a consent form giving a pathologist permission to examine tissue or genetic makeup. By enrolling in this program, patients will significantly help fuel research. 

Enroll in Precision Genetic Testing

If you are a patient at Weill Cornell Medicine / NewYork-Presbyterian, or at another institution and are interested in a precision medicine study, please speak with your clinician as patients are enrolled on a referral basis.
