We all know someone that is affected by aggressive and deadly disease like cancer and heart failure. Although we have made strides toward treatments, these relentless conditions continue to devastate lives here in Missouri and around the globe. This is the time to do more.
The NextGen Precision Health Discovery Series is a monthly seminar that provides learning opportunities for UM System faculty and staff across disciplines, the statewide community and our other partners. All are welcome to join the discussion to learn about the scope of precision health research and identify potential collaborative opportunities.
Precision health will develop interventions for individuals and populations to improve health outcomes. By basing medical approaches on individualized factors, such as genetics, environment and lifestyle — rather than using a traditional one-size-fits-all approach, precision health can improve diagnosis, treatment and patient care more than ever before.Research & Solutions
