Keeping Cool in the Race for Precision Medicine

Keeping Cool in the Race for Precision Medicine
Healio Rheumatology, December 2016

Precision medicine is rapidly racing forward and, for those of us who are watching, it may be reasonable to ask “What will this mean for me?” The most obvious question might be whether we should seek to be early adopters or lay low and wait for the dust to settle.

As former U.S. Senator Robert F. Kennedy stated in his “Ripple of Hope” speech in 1966, “There is a Chinese curse which says ‘May he live in interesting times.’” Although he was incorrect in attributing the quote to a Chinese curse, Kennedy, like British Politician Joseph Chamberlain 68 years before him, took the phrase to mean that with interesting times come not only excitement and danger but also optimism and creativity. This is the way I think of precision medicine today.
