Overview of Precision Medicine

2/17/2014; 106 minutes

Keith Yamamoto, Vice Chancellor for Research, UCSF, explores precision medicine, a new approach to make medicine more predictive, preventive and precise. In precision medicine, data of all types– molecular, clinical, population-based– would be continuously amassed from consenting patients and citizens, then analyzed in ways that reveal unexpected correlations that drive additional molecular discoveries, new knowledge that could be applied in lab or clinic, and an understanding of health and disease so detailed as to produce precision care for you as an individual.
