The successful incorporation of genomics profiling data into clinical studies has been a topic of much interest and holds great promise.  However, this goal presents new challenges that continue to be addressed.  I will discuss what I believe are the greatest challenges, both solved and open, and how my lab's work has contributed.  I will use a case study one of the largest clinical genomics studies carried out to date: the NIH Glue Grant, "Inflammation and the Host Response to Injury."
