“What if figuring out the right dose of medicine was as simple as taking our temperature? That’s the promise of precision medicine. Delivering the right treatments, at the right time, every time to the right person”
Barack Obama, Jan 2015
In his 2015 State of the Union address, President Obama announced the launch of the Precision Medicine Initiative — a bold new research effort to revolutionize how we improve health and treat disease. This was an historic moment in the emergence of personalised medicine as an integral part of the future of healthcare and we look forward to seeing the research outcomes that will emerge from the $215m investment into patient powered projects.
