Survey shows extensive support for nationwide precision medicine study

September 23, 2016

A majority of adults expressed support of and willingness to participate in the Precision Medicine Initiative’s national research effort, according to recent survey data published in PLOS ONE.

“Precision medicine is an emerging approach to disease prevention, diagnosis and treatment that takes into account differences between individuals. While not new, to date it has only been applied to certain conditions,” David J. Kaufman, PhD, of NIH’s National Human Genome Research Institute, and colleagues wrote. “The Precision Medicine Initiative (PMI) plans to build a comprehensive scientific knowledge base to implement precision medicine on a larger scale by launching a national cohort study of a million or more Americans.”
