Dynetics room-naming ceremony held at Smith Family Clinic for Genomic Medicine

A visiting-physicians office at the Smith Family Clinic for Genomic Medicine has been named in honor of Dynetics, supporter of the HudsonAlpha Foundation.

Headquartered in Huntsville, Ala., Dynetics, provides high-tech products and services in an ethical, responsive, and cost-effective fashion to the national security, satellite, launch, automotive, cybersecurity, and critical infrastructure sectors.

“We have watched this whole thing happen,” said David King, Dynetics chief executive officer. “We are very excited about what is going on at HudsonAlpha and the Smith Family Clinic. It has already had a huge impact on the state of Alabama and we are thankful that this team is here in our community. We have been looking for the right thing to do and we found it.”

This new gift supports genomic medicine at the Smith Family Clinic. The clinic sees children and adults with rare undiagnosed disease and utilizes whole genome sequencing to diagnose and identify new treatments for those patients.

“The visiting-physicians office is very important to the clinic and the collaborative process with visiting providers,” said Dr. David Bick, geneticist and medical director for the clinic. “The patients are very appreciative for what you are doing – this gift will directly benefit them.”
