The Duke Center for Precision Health (CPH) is a collaborative effort between CTSI and the Precision Genomics Collaboratory (PGC) that works to harness the power of genomic, biomarker, and health data to transform patient care and population health.

What We Do

CPH fuels clinical, translational, and basic science to serve as a foundational network for coalescing communities of Duke scientists. The center aims to expand clinical genetics, conduct clinically relevant translational research, perform cutting-edge implementation science, engage with and build trust in the community, and educate the workforce of tomorrow.

Group of people standing in a line

Specifically, CPH works to

  • Lead population genomics science to inform personalized patient care

  • Conduct cutting-edge translational 'omics discovery to support clinical decision-making

  • Create, study, and implement methods for clinical translation and integrate new discoveries and evidence-based practices into the health system

  • Enhance transparency and build trust through community engagement and leverage precision health discoveries to address health disparities

  • Support robust genomics and precision health medicine education to facilitate and build the pipeline of precision health scientists

Key Initiatives

Duke Kannapolis

Duke Kannapolis functions as an engine to accelerate precision genomics and population health research. It features a diverse community of engaged research participants and a variety of research projects that focus on exploring, discovering, and validating biomarkers that may inform a deeper understanding of health and disease.

The OneDukeGen Genomic Sequencing Study and Biorepository is collecting biological samples to analyze DNA and other material, like RNA, to use in research related to a variety of diseases and conditions. The goal is to recruit at least 100,000 people to join. The more people who join, the better chance we have of finding new gene variants and understanding what the ones we already know about mean to our health.

MURDOCK Repository

The Measurement to Understand Reclassification of Disease of Cabarrus and Kannapolis (MURDOCK) Biorepository Transformation Initiative is a groundbreaking community-based longitudinal study that has recruited 12,526 participants from a 20-zip code region in the southeastern United States centered on the city of Kannapolis, NC, and encompassing Cabarrus County, NC. This is a unique opportunity for investigators to use biospecimens for research. Thousands of samples and associated clinical outcome data is available to all Duke researchers.
