Precision Medicine Resource (PMR)

The Precision Medicine Resource (PMR) supports both discovery and implementation science and heavily utilizes interdisciplinary input from basic science researchers, clinicians from all specialties, laboratory medicine scientists, human geneticists, systems biologists, biomedical informaticians and mathematicians, health information technology experts, health educators, and policy makers. Each year PMR funds pilot awards and fellowships, and also hosts the "Advances in Precision Medicine" seminar series and special guest lectures, in addition to offering consultations and other services.

Precision Medicine offers the opportunity to increase the effectiveness of health care at reduced cost with improved outcomes, decreased adverse effects, and greater patient satisfaction. Advances in genomics, biomarkers, and information technology now make it possible to realize this goal for an increasing number of clinical indications. PMR seeks to facilitate improved diagnosis and treatment of disease, and ultimately improved maintenance of health through more accurate prediction of disease risk.
