SIGH continues to support medical specialists around the globe. Mexico has been in the race like the rest of the world to battle against COVID-19. In Tijuana, Mexico, over the last many months Genomica, a new diagnostic and treatment laboratory was created and opens in January 2021. Genomica “managed to bring together a select, outstanding and recognized group of academics with decades of experience in the areas of Molecular Biology, Virology, Infectiology and Epidemiology.”* They have worked alongside their colleagues from the University of California in San Diego (UC San Diego) and the Scripps Research Institute (TSRI).
SIGH awarded Genomica a grant for the purchase of a much-needed sub 80 freezer to allow them to properly store their testing samples. Genomica will be the regions first laboratory for diagnosis of SARS-CoV-2.
